New College of Florida is sanctioned by national faculty group

https://www.tampabay.com/news/education/2024/02/26/new-college-florida-is-sanctioned-by-national-faculty-group/

A national faculty union has voted to sanction New College of Florida, saying the Sarasota school’s leaders have imposed “an aggressively ideological agenda” since taking over more than a year ago.

The American Association of University Professors, which has placed 12 other universities on its sanctions list since 1995, pointed to its investigation last year in justifying the addition of New College. The group sanctions schools for violations of shared governance, the principle of joint decision-making between university administrators and faculty.

It pointed to the “unprecedented politically motivated takeover” of New College marked by a “complete departure from shared governance” since Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed six new members to the school’s board of trustees in January 2023. The board quickly made changes that included replacing the president and eliminating gender studies as a major.

The union’s website says sanctions are published “for the purpose of informing Association members, the profession at large, and the public that unsatisfactory conditions of academic government exist at the institutions in question.” Sanctions can also be removed.


DeSatan's attacks on education hurt students and employees.

Kill the school and sell the prime shorefront. First they, Rufo and Corcoran and co, will make lots of money off the government subsidies with their insanely inflated salaries, then they make corrupt contracts for services and curriculum in side hustles. The budget is an outrage. They are defying Title 9 in allocating resources to their new athletic programs, for one thing. On and on. Rules don’t apply to them.

Thanks, Sancho, for posting this.

"Ladapo's UF College of Medicine colleagues were concerned he bypassed crucial vetting during his whirlwind hiring process."
