Author's Note: The fight for students rights continues. The series is stretching out longer than anticipated but you will want to keep reading. There's some good news at the end of the road.
Dear Chancellor Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org);
After laying the groundwork in my previous correspondence, I finally have an opportunity to respond to the sweeping claim that UNCW's student affairs division treats student groups equally, regardless of their political viewpoint. I will also respond to the Dean's claim that there are hundreds of student groups on campus that have been approved without any difficulties whatsoever. That claim suggests that those who are not approved have somehow failed to comply with university policies and procedures. The contrary evidence I will present will demonstrate that there has been a pattern of misconduct in the Dean's office extending over a period of more than a decade.
Let us start by going back to the first letter I wrote to you. We can learn something by focusing on just one of the groups in question, the Second Amendment Club. I have a special interest in this club because I am their advisor.
I began to help the club with its application for official recognition all the way back in August. The student affairs division has required multiple resubmissions of the application since that time. Let me provide some examples of suggested revisions from a recent application, which was submitted seven months into the process. Again, these are suggested revisions coming from your administration seven months into the application process:
- The administrator doesn't like the fact that we have the word "sixty" in our application. He prefers that we use the numerical "60."

Geez, I didn’t have TIME for “student activities” in college. I was WAY, WAY too busy with my own life. I did have to work. I had a life.
Same tactics as the IRS used (using?) to delay / deny decisions to conservative 501(c)4 groups. Use pettifogging and circular reasoning to DENY without taking any responsibility. Just coincidence I’m sure!
Dear Prof. Adams: Your letter used the word “eight” when it should have been “eighth”. I am afraid we will have to submit this letter to an unnamed committee for further review, at which point it will be disallowed. Thank you.
I just love Adams’ writing and sarcasm!
