The U of I Provost issues an apology

Last week, our editorial board published an article in support of the GEO which heavily criticized the University, and Provost Cangellaris as well. While we still stand behind those criticisms, it should be noted that Cangellaris has offered an apology for his handling of the matter. From WILL:

“We heard many voices on this campus (during the strike), voices of confusion, anxiety, frustration, voices of suspicion, voices of disappointment, even rage,” he said during the Senate meeting. “And I said things and I did things that were blamed as putting more oil in the fire that was amplifying those voices. And (I was) criticized for being unhelpful. I regret this deeply and I sincerely apologized for this.”
