The University Record, March 13, 2000


The University Record welcomes letters from members of the University community. Those on topics of broad University interest will be given preference for publication. Letters should be no more than 500 words in length and must be signed. The editorial staff reserves the right to reject any letter and to edit and/or condense letters for publication. The editorial staff also may limit the numbers of weeks letters may be published on an issue, and the number of times any one person's viewpoint on a single issue will be published. Letters may appear in small type. Organizations submitting material must include the name and address of an appropriate officer. Letters must be received by noon Wednesday to receive consideration for publication in the next issue.

Van’t Hul’s work praised

I am but one of many who have admired the manner in which Nelvia Van’t Hul has edited LSA Magazine over the past two decades.

The breadth of her intellectual engagement is easily discerned from the range of contributions that she invited and subsequently guided into print. The depth of her commitment to quality publication can be seen from the pleasing textual and visual aspects of each issue of the magazine.

It is our loss that she is now retiring from the editor’s chair, and we are grateful for the traditions of interesting content and elegant presentation that she has so effectively developed in her many years of service to our College and our University.
