Reconsider the Tenure Application of Riley Brewster sign now

I object to the decision against granting Riley Brewster tenure as a professor in the Painting Department of the University of Washington. He is an inspired, compassionate teacher along with being a gifted, passionate artist. I urge you the reconsider this decision. He is the kind of Professor who always puts his students first. He teaches by positive reinforcement, valuing and encouraging each individual creative spark. His classes always fill first which is a strong testament to how valued he is by the students.

He is an amazing asset to the University of Washington and this will be a sad loss to the University and the Art Community in the Pacific Northwest. Please reconsider your decision.
