Ed. Note: Mission College President Dr. Monte Perez wrote the following letter to the San Fernando Valley Sun/El Sol after the March 6 commentary from students seeking the return of Drama Professor Guillermo Aviles-Rodriguez, who has been denied tenure at the school. To date the San Fernando Valley Sun / El Sol has not written any editorials or commentaries about the ongoing dispute.

Dear Editor,

At Los Angeles Mission College, we take great pride in our tenure review process. We strictly adhere to the rules for forming a peer review panel, allow panel members to deliberate without interference, and respect and honor their decisions.

The tenure review of Mission College professor Guillermo Aviles-Rodriguez was no different than any of the others conducted annually on our campus despite the claims of unfair treatment made in an article in the March 6th edition of the San Fernando Valley Sun.

The specifics of the Aviles-Rodriguez case cannot be discussed because of the protection of privacy afforded to all faculty members. But I can say that I am disturbed by the lack of factual information in the Mar. 6th article. Much of what was printed is erroneous. Comments attributed to several professors mentioned in the story are simply untrue. It was disappointing to read these allegations in your fine newspaper. With a combined 73 years of experience at Mission, these professors have held multiple leadership positions at our college, and are known for their integrity and their devotion to student success.

The process for tenure review is specified in a collective bargaining agreement and the Education Code. The review panel consists of five faculty members, one chosen by the professor under review.

I hope that any students or others concerned with our tenure review process will come to a workshop we will hold to explain and discuss the procedures we have followed. It is scheduled for noon on April 3rd in the Arroyo room of the Culinary Arts Building. We welcome your input and your involvement. All of us – administrators, faculty, students and community leaders – have the same goal, maintaining Mission College as an institution that provides inspiration and a quality education for all who seek its services.

Dr. Monte Perez,

President,

Los Angeles Mission College

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
