> Dear President Williams:
> It has come to my attention from media reports and
> subsequent follow up with your office that one of
> City College's facilities, a "community and student
> center" is named after "Guillermo Morales and Assata
> Shakur" and that a visible sign above the center
> entrance displays those names. I understand that
> this designation was unknown to you, having been so
> designated consistent with the permission of a
> previous CCNY college administration. I write to
> inform you that only The Board of Trustees of The
> City University of New York may designate or name
> College and University facilities. There is no
> record of any such Board action. Therefore, I ask
> you to take appropriate steps to dismantle this
> unauthorized and inappropriate signage.
> Sincerely,
> Matthew Goldstein
