UF Dean of Students fired for writing a positive letter of recommendation

It’s a common conundrum – how do you get rid of a bad administrator? Fire them, or help them move on to another university by writing a good letter? The UF Dean of Students took the later approach with her Title IX Coordinator – and it ended with both of them getting fired. Her recommendation?

“Fantastic. Incredibly knowledgeable. Amazing work ethic. Strategic. Great collaboration. My very highest endorsement!!!” Day Shaw wrote. “Hope you get him. He will be a tremendous help to you as you continue to create Florida Poly.”

The facts are in the Gainesville Sun, here. The Title IX name is familiar, he left UO’s Dean of Student’s office about 10 years ago. From InsideHigherEd here.
