I neither trust your intentions nor will I offer any information that can be used to harm any other student. This is quite clearly the beginning of a campaign to suppress student rights. This kind of middle management authoritarianism is reprehensible, and I will not be meeting with any official to discuss any act of free expression. Please do not contact me again. To paraphrase Julius Martov, I hope you understand the injustice in which you are taking part.

In Honesty,

Dan Seel

Dear Daniel

I hope this email finds you well. As you are aware, a demonstration occurred on our campus last month. You were identified at this demonstration. I would like to meet with you to discuss your experience at the demonstration. Please know that you are not in any trouble, but it is important that we meet. Please contact me by 4:00pm on November 9, 2017 to schedule your meeting with me. I may be reached by email at or by phone at 518-276-6284.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I look forward to our conversation.
