Statement of Protest Regarding Faculty Firings at Mount St. Mary’s University — 3 Comments

  1. As a Mount alum, ’70, and an Elmira College professor for 40 yrs., I am embarrassed by the Pres. and Board’s actions. Both have demonstrated that they are unable to lead the University and should not only reinstate those fired but also tender their resignations.

  2. This is the most outrageous conduct of a president of an academic institution.

    The faculty should stand up as one body and fire the president! The students should take the president’s office and do not allow him to enter. Bring the provost back as temporary president to continue with the academic life.
