Title

The Web 1980 "Candid Faculty Remarks"

Description

This page from The Web 1980 features remarks from Dr. James Erb, a professor of music and director of the University Choir and Schola Cantorum, in the section "Looking Back: 150 Years at the University of Richmond." Dr. Erb states that University of Richmond students in 1980 "are as complacent as hell" and the reason for this complacency is because "conservative parents find a place for their children where the history has not been one of rebellion." Dr. Erb describes this "complacency of affluence" as "too much of material things and not enough protection." This section also describes the University's reaction to the $50 million gift from E. Claiborne Robins that helped the University recognize its "potential to become an excellent school," although "the external effects are much more quickly arrived at then the internal ones."
