What I hope will be the first of many:
The American Association of University Professors is sending two representatives from its national headquarters in Washington D.C. to Iowa City to launch an inquiry into the search that landed J. Bruce Harreld as the next University of Iowa president.
The inquiry could lead to a full-blown investigation around whether the state Board of Regents breached the association’s values related to shared governance and the selection of administrators.
I guess J. Bruce Harreld was right. Institutions either go up or down.
We just didn’t know he was talking about the Iowa Board of Regents.
