Another Side on Bush Institute
March 21, 2007
The SMU faculty discussion over the institute that will accompany the Bush Presidential Library is turning into a “she said, he said” debate. The latest is a “Dear Colleague” letter today from several political science/history professors saying the open letter sent out by a faculty group Tuesday, asking that the institute be totally separated from SMU, contained misrepresentations, unverifiable claims, and unwarranted assumptions. The new letter presents arguments in support of the institute’s connection to SMU, asserting that it will be a boon to intellectual life at SMU.
