Dear President Levin,
We write to you as concerned Pierson College students and alumni to affirm the power of community in the residential colleges and to ask for your help. We understand the centrality of the Master in residential college life and that successfully fulfilling that role goes beyond simply supplying funds for events, research, and summer projects, organizing study breaks, arranging master’s teas, et al. Masters can provide the support, wisdom, and friendship that makes a residential colleges a family rather than a collection of students sharing a dormitory.
Master Harvey Goldblatt, affectionately known as "Master G", uniquely exemplifies these admirable qualities. His emanating warmth, infectious devotion, and compassionate spirit have made him a pillar of Pierson College’s myriad successes over the past seventeen and one-half years. Master G consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty to create a supportive and lifelong community for Pierson College students and alumni.
We understand Master G is currently scheduled to leave the Mastership of Pierson College at the end of the 2012-2013 academic year. Needlessly losing an inspirational leader such as Master G would be devastating not only to Pierson College students, but to our residential college system and Yale University as well.
We ask for your help to prevail upon Master G to remain as Pierson College Master beyond the 2012-2013 academic year.
Pierson College Students
Past, Present, and Future
