Why Is Western Michigan Ousting a Popular Dean?

January 23, 2015

About 200 people came to a meeting Thursday night of the board of Western Michigan University to protest the decision not to keep Alex Enyedi as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, MLive.com reported. University officials have not said why they did not renew Enyedi's contract, and have said that they don't comment on personnel matters. But supporters noted that he is beloved by the faculty and that he pushed hard (but without success) for salary adjustments for some women employed by the college whom he argued were not equitably paid.
