Some comments on the trustees’ report on diversity (On the Campus, Oct. 9): The report bemoans the face that only 3 percent of Ph.D. students are black. I have a solution: Since 9 percent of undergrads are black, why not admit them to grad school? You go from 3 percent to 9 percent.

Also, the trustees want more women faculty – that’s good, but what about diversity of thought? What percent are conservative versus liberals? This should match the nation’s stats.
