University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel fired by board after investigation

Source: Detroit Free Press

The University of Michigan Board of Regents has unanimously fired school President Mark Schlissel for cause following an investigation into a relationship with a subordinate, the board announced Saturday evening.

In a letter to Schlissel, the board spelled out its concerns and said his conduct was "particularly egregious considering your knowledge of and involvement in addressing incidents of harassment by University of Michigan personnel, and your declared commitment to work to 'free' the University community of sexual harassment or other improper conduct. For example, with regard to the actions of Martin Philbert, on August 3, 2020, you sent an email to the entire University of Michigan community, writing that: 'The highest priority for our regents and leadership team is to make our community safe for all.'

"You also declared to the community that your leadership would 'determine what we need to do to address the fear of retaliation in our community and build a culture that does not accept misconduct or harassment at any level.' Accordingly, there can be no question that you were acutely aware that any inappropriate conduct or communication between you and a subordinate would cause substantial harm to the dignity and reputation of the University of Michigan."

The decision was made behind closed doors Saturday morning, without a public vote. The Free Press left messages with Schlissel seeking comment.

1. When men think

with the little head, all logic and good sense goes out the window. You made that bed, now you get to lie in it.

6. "think" ?

I wouldn't call it "thinking", exactly.... more akin to Pavlov's dog...

Many of us males are dogs, that's a fact. The question is the degree to which we control our doggishness...


It is unfortunate. Recalling a former female president is a good move, as they will be much more unlikely to have the problem of sexual harassment by the U president recurring, for the time being... Not 100% protected, of course, in the world we live in...

but 99.99999999999% lol

2. It reads like a Lonelyhearts column

This guy is the President of the University, and he uses university emails to flirt with a female subordinate.
How dumb can he be?

Even if she welcomed his advances, and she apparently didn't, those emails were used to hang him.
What an idiot.
