Binghamton Fallout: Adjunct Reinstated, Inquiry Shifted

October 5, 2009

The fallout continues to grow in the basketball scandal at the State University of New York at Binghamton. On Friday, Nancy L. Zimpher, chancellor of the SUNY system, announced that the system -- and not the Binghamton campus, as previously suggested -- would oversee an audit of the basketball program. Also on Friday, Sally Dear was informed that she would continue to have work as an adjunct (although in a new department), reversing a recent notification that she would no longer have such work, The New York Times reported. Dear said that she believed her dismissal last month -- after teaching at Binghamton for 11 years -- was related to her willingness to speak out in the Times about the difficulty of teaching some athletes and pressure from the athletics department over grading.
