An open letter of congratulations to the students of Xavier University written by Patrick H. Ratterman, SJ, Vice President of Student Affairs, and Patrick J. Nally, Dean of Students.
This letter was distributed to Xavier University students after the 1969-1970 academic year. During this academic year, which also happened to be Xavier's first year of coeducation in the undergraduate day school, students, faculty, and administrators grappled with social and political movements sweeping the United States. The letter addresses responses to the events and issues that marked the year.
