    In every dark day of activism, you hope to find a man like Joseph
    Belluck at the epicenter of something you care about:

    Wholly separate of the SUNY Chancellery, it is a welcome diplomatic relief to find sanity and health-of-devotion within the  leadership of the State Legislature and the SUNY Trustees. 
    Mr. Belluck among them is to be applauded for his prior journeys and his present voice across a
    variety of committees. 

     
    Real-time guidelines for consequences the Trustees wisely hope to avoid are framed within this September 10, 2012 letter to Dr. Elizabeth H. Sibolski,  President of the Middle States
    Commission on Higher Education.
