Dear Chancellor Robinson,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, diversity inclusion, education reform, and environment. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, expand on diversity inclusion to accept people who are different or who have different skills, improve education reform to make learning a better tool, make social justice stronger to improve communities, and many others. Chancellor Robinson, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 7th Chancellor of University of Arkansas and your work on diversity inclusion to be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as 7th Chancellor of University of Arkansas, 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. Also on education reform I like on how you support literacy programs to help students including adults improve on their comprehension skills or gain literacy skills.

Another thing that I like about your work as Chancellor of University of Arkansas 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, expand Advanced Arkansas a scholarships to help low income students or minorities get assistance on getting into college or affording supplies, create Equity Task Force to find ways to combat against racial injustice while find ways to expand on making education more accessible to people who come from disadvantage communities along with who come from different communities, and heavily express the need to reduce high tuition cost to help students from paying high costs in order to get a college.

Chancellor Robinson, 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 in different settings, 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 and your website I enjoy watching you talk about diversity, education reform, need for improvements in social justice, equity issues, and some of ideas to improve society. I really enjoy reading your work on African American history and some of your books Remembrances in Black: Personal Perspectives of the African American Experience at the University of Arkansas and Dangerous Liaison: Sex and Love in the Segregated South and Forsaking All Others: A True Story of Interracial Sex and Revenge in the 1880s South. Your role as 7th Chancellor of University of Arkansas and your work in history helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, diversity inclusion, and many others. 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 inclusion to accept people who are different or who have different skills, improve education reform to make learning a better tool, make social justice stronger to improve communities, and many others.
