Dear President McInnis,

In these subjects, I like yo learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, expand on diversity to accept people who are different or who come from a different background or have different skills, improve education reform to make learning a better tool, and many others. President McInnis, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 6th President of Stony Brook University, some of your work on diversity inclusion, and your advocacy for improvements along with preservation of arts, humanities, and history to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 6th President of Stony Brook University, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter and advocate for civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and expressing the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination in order to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities. Also to improve civil rights, I liked on how you work to expand on rules to combat against bullying and harassment. On people with disabilities; rights, I like on how you work to expand courses for people with disabilities to learn different subjects including basic introductory courses to help them learn. Supporting accommodations to help students with disabilities like extra time on exams or use educational software to help improve comprehension, expanding tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implementing more liberal arts, arts, humanities, history, and basic classes to make education diverse along with make more opportunities for students to find subjects that they want to learn are great ways to improve education reform. On diversity, I like on how you work on hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the college and expand on programs to help educate staff members and students about different cultures along with the need for diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background. Also to improve diversity in education I like on how you expanded more basic or introductory classes to different subjects, expand on arts, history, and humanities to help accept students with different skills to learn different subjects or assist students to explore different courses to their degree. Another thing that I like about your work as President of Stony Brook University is is how you expand on more research programs to help students get engage to learn how different topics can make a great difference for society, implement mental health services to help students who struggle with mental health to get the care they need, push for more scholarships to help low income students or minorities get assistance on getting into college or affording supplies, and heavily express the need to reduce high tuition cost to help students from paying high costs in order to get a college.

Also I like your work on being an advocate of preserving while restoring history including historical sites to make learning a better tool for people to understand history along with culture, teaming up with different historical sites including museums to find ways to accommodate people with disabilities including people who struggle to learn get the resources they need to lean like close captions, more guides to help answer questions, or audio to help engage learning when they visit historical sites or museums, and many others.
President McInnis, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Also with a disability I have struggles on trying to understand how society works due to my struggle with comprehension and I get bullied by women including adults about having a disability. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also on Youtube I enjoy watching you talk about diversity, education reform, need for improvements in social justice, and some of ideas to improve society including historical sites including museums. Also I enjoyed reading your books “The Politics of Taste in Antebellum Charleston” and “Educated in Tyranny any Thomas Jefferson’s University”. Also your advocacy to improve education learning in museums including historical sites helps give me a voice when I face some discrimination in these places based on a disability. Your work on advocacy in history, arts, and humanities and your role as President of Stony Brook University help me continue to history, social justice, diversity, environment, and education reform and even motivate myself to visit historical sites including museums to expands on my knowledge. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to emphasize the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, expand on diversity to accept people who are different or who come from a different background or have different skills, improve education reform to make learning a better tool, and many others.
