1/15/2013 Update: Here’s a news story on how the University of Arizona got rid of their Provost and President. It started with a motion like the one that the UO Senate will vote on Wednesday, regarding Bean. This led to a survey of the faculty, run by the Senate, who had complaints remarkably similar to those many of UO’s faculty have about Bean and Johnson Hall in general. Both the President and Provost were replaced. Interestingly, Gottfredson applied for the UA job, but didn’t get it. The former UA President moved on to replace the Fiesta Bowl’s felonious prior CEO, John Junkers.
Questions for Bean:
