To whom it may concern:
I write in response to the article, “Hofstra student claims letter allegedly written by music professor demonstrates sexual harassment,” published in the April 23 issue of The Hofstra Chronicle. In my 23 years teaching at Hofstra, I have never previously communicated – nor felt – the sentiments I expressed in the letter referenced therein. And I never will again. I have always tried to act in my students’ best interests. But in this instance I failed. Upon receiving the student’s negative response, I immediately offered a sincere apology, which I reiterate now.
