Jehuda Reinharz announced Thursday that he will step down as president of Brandeis University after the end of the current academic year or when a successor is selected. The university's announcement listed many accomplishments of his 15-year tenure as president and included glowing praise from trustee leaders. But as The Boston Globe noted, Reinharz has been the subject of intense criticism in the last year from faculty members frustrated by the university's financial difficulties. Further, a plan (currently on hold) to sell the university's noted collection of modern art infuriated not only professors, but arts advocates nationwide. Reinharz told the Globe that the controversies didn't influence his decision, and that he felt that "the time is right."
