While "whatsername's" post might reflect most of the faculty that you know I might guess that it is not a reflective representation of the faculty. Rather than staying mired on this, many are concerned that the process of governance has been misused by the board. And this is a concern regarding both the current and past boards. Or do you forget the righteous cause of change that the past election was all about. Ignoring any missteps, while myopically focusing only on their teaching, is shirking the responsibility that shared governance bestows on the faculty. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak, we are supposed to turn our eyes away from these charges since they are against our side? Blindly accept any misdeeds and mistakes because it is for a good cause? And by the way, the 5 million dollar grant and the prestigious national prize came about because of the efforts of the previous administration. (Of course the facullty and staff created the climate that garnered the accolades but someone had to do the work of filling out all the forms and put the proper gloss on our achievements) I might guess that the Aspen Award committee was somewhat mystified by the absence of the author of SBCC's application when they came to visit the school.
