Editorial: In need of more Knapp time

The Hatchet’s editorial board calls on President Knapp to be more engaging with students.

On Saturday, University President Steven Knapp held a “State of the University” speech for visiting alumni. This event was a great opportunity for graduates who wish to have a sense of where their contributions will help lead the University. In contrast, Knapp has yet to provide the same understanding to current students. This lack of expressed vision is both symptomatic and demonstrative of a presidency that faces a perceived disconnect between the highest level of the administration and the student body.
