As a 1972 graduate, former elected Student Government Association senator and prior appointed alumni board member of Towson University — as well as a resident of the Towson community since 1989 — I think that the main quality that the institution's next chief executive should and must have is a decent respect for the feelings and opinions of the surrounding areas that give the campus its home ("A search for excellence," March 31). This has been a quality sorely lacking in the last several presidents, most recently over the seven-years term of the current incumbent.

Some of the residents of the Rodgers Forge neighborhood that borders Towson University's softball stadium are alumni of the school and fans of the Tigers. They understand the university's desire to build a $2 million new facility this summer and bring the program up to NCAA Title IX standards. They just don't want it 25 feet from their backyards. The roughly two-dozen neighbors, who last month formed an ad-hoc committee to protest a new complex, rallied outside the university Saturday morning, saying the school has refused to negotiate with them on the plans.
