Debate Over Leadership at Florida Keys CC

September 21, 2009

The board of Florida Keys Community College will meet today and may fire Jill Landesberg-Boyle as president, The Miami Herald reported. The board has already restricted her ability to fire anyone. In two years in office, she has won praise from many -- and appears to have strong backing from current faculty members -- for improving academic programs, finding additional funds for projects and beautifying the campus. But her critics say she is verbally abusive, fires employees unfairly and has created a "toxic" environment. Landesberg-Boyle has admitted to having a "potty mouth," but has defended her agenda, and her supporters note that she has faced anonymous critics ever since starting to institute some reforms.
