Provost Pick Upsets Professors at College of Charleston

November 9, 2015
 

Many faculty members questioned the decision of the board of the College of Charleston last year to appoint Glenn McConnell as president. Now faculty leaders are questioning McConnell's selection as provost, Brian McGee, The Post and Courier reported. Faculty leaders said they repeatedly asked for a chance for input into the provost choice, and were delayed and largely ignored. McGee has been serving as provost and was previously chair of communications. Professors question his role in two controversial tenure cases -- a subject he declined to discuss. McConnell defended the selection, praising McGee for his performance while serving as interim provost.
