SAINTs Group Featured in Boston.com Article

Emmanuel College is once again in Boston area news, but not for  planning construction on a new dorm or their current financial status.

On May 27, Education correspondent Allison Pohle of Boston.com published an article featuring statements from Marcie Paez ’17 and Meghann Soby ’16.

Paez commented on the creation of the SAINTs group saying, “Once I found out Dr. Fortin and Dr. Claire Mehta were denied tenure, I wanted to do something, I thought it was the perfect time to reignite the issue…We’re constantly asking faculty and staff for our input to be taken into consideration, but students can’t give input until they know what is happening.”

Soby commented more specifically on her relationship with Dr. Mehta, one of the professors denied tenure. She wrote a letter to Sister Janet outlining her out-of-classroom relationship with Mehta and how that impacted her college career.

The SAINTs group will be meeting with Sister Janet to discuss their demands on May 31.

This is a developing story and more updates will come as they arise.

  1. Nope.

    I actually had a lot of respect for this group until it spoke to boston.com. This is turning out to be a lot of look-what-we-did chest thumping by the students to show how mighty and powerful they are rather than sticking to the issue at hand. Wasn’t attracting media attention one of their *threats* if the administration didn’t adequately respond to their demands next month? Pace yourselves, and be aware of the possible implications all this attention has on future academic careers of the faculty in question. The Internet, and controversy in particular, follows people around forever.
