"To the Faculty: 'If You Don't Read This, Don't Complain About Anything That Happens at Queens College'"

Sent to all of Queens College's faculty from the Ad Hoc Faculty Committee, this letter attempts to collect a general consensus from faculty on the ongoing campus unrest in order to present a unified front to the college's President James P. McMurray. The letter includes several proposals previously issued to the president.

The group responsible for this letter should not be confused with the Ad Hoc Committee (to End Political Suppression), a left student and faculty activist group largely responsible for the prolonged demonstrations at the college. In reference to them, the letter offers: "most faculty members believe that the demonstrators' tactics established dangerous precedents and that these tactics were disproportionate to the grievances."
