  • I am responding to the Nov. 18 guest opinion by Timothy Dolan, who describes issues, as he perceives them, currently facing Southern Oregon University. He also refers to Rogue Community College in the process.
    Although I am a member of the faculty at RCC, I am writing this simply as an interested member of the public and not as a representative of my school.
    Mr. Dolan brings up some intriguing questions, but the tone and essence of his column miss the mark in important ways. I think my colleagues at both institutions would agree that the relationship we share is a positive and productive one. In fact, I find that we achieve a synergy in our shared effort with students, which produces wonderful results.
    I can point to many students who have successfully graduated from both schools (RCC and SOU). In some cases they do go on to graduate programs at other universities, but these are often programs (such as Ph.D. programs) that are not offered locally.
    Personally, I am very grateful for our link with SOU, and I appreciate my colleagues on the SOU faculty very much. — Greg Marton, Medford
