I have a lot of friends that I've been talking to, and these are people who donate now and talking about holding back, and some are even questioning whether to send their kids to Fresno State, Dunkel told the Fresno Bee. I admire and have a lot of respect for President (Joseph) Castro and huge affection for Fresno State, Dunkel said. But I have huge concerns. This represents such an embarrassment to the university and the community. It's hard to believe this is an isolated thing that just happened. I have to imagine people previously knew of this person's character and what she's about. Fresno State President Joseph Castro acknowledged that he’s been having conversations with donors regarding the controversy. The conversations I'm having are more about their concern, and I share that concern. I understand where they're coming from. I'm asking them for understanding here as we work through the complexities of this issue.
