Disputed Departure Reversed at Our Lady of Holy Cross

May 28, 2014

A senior administrator whose forced departure spurred faculty unrest at Our Lady of Holy Cross College in Louisiana is returning to her job as head of the nursing program, The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported. Patricia Prechter had sought to relinquish the provost's job she had taken on in addition to her nursing department duties, but the college's president, Ronald Ambrosetti, told her via email that he interpreted her decision as a resignation, the newspaper reported. That prompted several faculty members to resign in protest and a vote of no confidence in the president. The college's regents got involved to strike an agreement that led to Prechter's return to the nursing position, The Times-Picayune said.
