Missouri State Asserts Right to Reassign Faculty Members

April 12, 2010

Faculty members said that the move took away important due process rights, but administrators said that they sometimes need to respond to situations in which they need to move someone. University officials have cited the controversy over their social work program, from which they removed four faculty members from teaching duties in 2008, which set off lawsuits, some of which have been settled.
