To the editor:

I would like to commend University of Massachusetts Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy for his public apology regarding the recently overturned policy banning Iranian nationals from admission to certain graduate programs at UMass. As President of the University’s Graduate Student Senate (GSS), I would also like to acknowledge the Chancellor’s responsiveness to the concerns of graduate students regarding the reversed policy, and his decision to form a task force charged with evaluating this issue, consistent with the recommendations GSS has offered.

To publicly acknowledge responsibility for the University’s error is an act of humility, integrity and accountability. It is also a manifestation of true leadership. I am grateful to Chancellor Subbaswamy for his.

Adina Giannelli, JD
President, UMass Graduate Student Senate
