Duquesne offered aid to an adjunct professor in need

I was incredulous after reading Daniel Kovalik's op-ed piece about Margaret Mary Vojtko ("Death of an Adjunct: Margaret Mary Died Underpaid and Underappreciated," Sept. 18, Perspectives).

I knew Margaret Mary well. When we learned of problems with her home, she was invited to live with us in the formation community at Laval House on campus, where she resided for several weeks over the past year.

Over the course of Margaret Mary's illness I, along with other Spiritan priests, visited with her regularly. In addition, the university and the Spiritan priests at Duquesne offered several other types of assistance to her.

Mr. Kovalik's use of an unfortunate death to serve an alternative agenda is sadly exploitive and is made worse because his description of the circumstances bears no resemblance to reality.
