Subject: DPAS Retreat 

I beheve that the call for a retreat at this point in time cannot resolve the conflicts 

within the department that appear to be administrative in nature. This continues to 

result in a lack of respect for faculty, failure to allow faculty to do their jobs and the 

over zealousness of the chair to change the overall philosophy of the department 

without faculty input. Since no change has occurred on the part of Dr. Garrison 

during the last two months, I don't believe that a retreat will resolve this conflict.
