|As many of you know, Provost Greene has decided not to renew Dean Enyedi's contract, essentially firing him as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Many on campus are angry with this decision. Dean Enyedi has been a supporter of students, faculty, and staff, and has improved the working and educational environment in the college. At last Thursday's Board of Trustees meeting, over 200 hundred people attended to show their support. Officers of the AAUP, PIO, and TAU spoke on behalf of Enyedi's leadership and collectively called for Provost Greene to reverse his decision. This demonstration of solidarity received both local and national media coverage.
Please consider signing the petition. Join the nearly one thousand teachers, students, alumni, and community members and voice your support for Dean Enyedi.
Some of the reasons I support Dean Enyedi and want Provost Greene to reverse his decision include:
Additionally, the WMU chapter of the AAUP (board-appointed faculty) has begun the process to put forth a question of confidence in Provost Greene. I suspect additional censures, no-confidence votes, and continued pressure from the community will be forthcoming.
Remember, when signing the petition please include your relationship to WMU and any comments you may have.
