An apology is in order

By Buchtelite Editorial Board

Admitting wrongdoing is difficult—and apparently too difficult, especially for The University of Akron’s administrators.

The tenderest consolation UA’s constituents have so far received is the passive statement, “Mistakes were made”; not who made them, not why they made them, and not what specifically went wrong.

Nearly 100 protesters did not come to [Oct. 14]’s Board of Trustees meeting for nothing. An apology would do well to appease those who so vehemently question the administration’s decisions; apologies are also the first step for starting anew.

But—as is no different from previous Board meetings—none came.
