The VSA Council issue a statement opposing the creation of a new post, director of religious and chaplaincy services (DRACS), to take the place of a chaplain. The statement expressed “great displeasure with the Trustees’ solely engaging in dialogue with the faculty and in no way with the student body whom this new program most directly affects.”  Protests about the decision also came from some student religious organizations.     The Miscellany News

The position and its title were subsequently changed, the post become that of director of religious and spiritual life.
