UT President Lloyd Jacobs wasted no time responding to the ten letters we delivered just days ago. Dr. Jacobs told us that he enjoyed hearing directly from students and thanked us for including him in this exercise.
Each student received a lengthy hand-written reply from the president on university stationary.
Dr. Jacobs told the committee that he was particularly moved by student letters sharing concerns about the “oppressive” costs to earn a college degree, and high-prices of textbooks.
He also shared frustration with a student who, like he, is a vegetarian and has difficulty finding more than a few menu items on campus.
