Under Fire, Riverside Provost Will Step Down

D’Anieri has faced increasing criticism in the last month from faculty members, who say he has left them out of key budgeting and hiring decisions. In an email message to the campus, D'Anieri acknowledged the conflict.

"These differences have made it difficult to achieve the level of unity that I believe we need to move forward on our ambitious agenda."
