As the article makes clear, nothing will take away the grief, but timely action by the city and this fine story by Gabriel Neely-Streit will add to Amar's legacy.


Yes, precisely. Dunn led the way, but others were willing to follow (at SIUC) or look the other way (BOT and system counsel).

I agree 100%. A comment calling students "parasites"--an apparent, perhaps unwitting transference of a prominent anti-Semitic trope to minority students--demonstrates the the need for more faculty leaders like Father Brown on campus. If one wants to know why SIUC is losing minori…
