An Unanswered Letter to Mary Sue Coleman

Dear President Mary Sue Coleman,

I’m writing to encourage you to publicly denounce Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell as a University of Michigan alum due to his ongoing harassment of student assembly president Chris Armstrong. A public statement from your office stating that you hope Shirvell will get the psychiatric help he so obviously needs would go a long way in distancing your institution from this mentally ill man.

On the Anderson Cooper show Shirvell stated, “As a private citizen, and as a University of Michigan alum, I care, because this is my university.” He takes pride in his association with your university and claims it as his own. I would ask you to take the radical step of revoking any degrees granted to Shirvell by the University of Michigan, but I know this is not practical. I do believe Shirvell to be in need of therapy, but as I am not a psychiatrist I realize my opinion is just that.

The fact that a former student is harassing a current student to the degree that Armstrong feels the need for a protection order is ludicrous. The University of Michigan should issue a statement that Shirvell is no longer welcome on campus and apologize for having graduated such an obvious failure. I’m sure your standards are higher than this and Shirvell should obviously not be seen as an example of the typical University of Michigan student.
