President Wilson's statement on Jill Carroll's release

President Jack M. Wilson
March 30, 2006

     "We are very pleased, and relieved, to learn that journalist and UMass-Amherst alumna Jill Carroll is now safe.  Jill is a courageous young journalist who embodies the highest ideals of her profession. She has demonstrated that she is willing to pursue the truth - wherever it leads - so that it may be shared with others, even at great risk to her personal safety. 

     The entire University of Massachusetts community, including the faculty members who taught Jill and the classmates who studied with her, are thankful for the efforts of all parties who worked so tirelessly to secure her release.  Along with so many other people around the world, we celebrate this day."
