what happened to dean glen weissenberger
DePaul University’s Provost just fired the Dean of my law school, Glen Weissenberger, for blowing the whistle on a university accounting scheme. I feel bad for Dean G, but even worse for the current and future DePaul law students who won’t get to benefit from his leadership.
I wish I were in Chicago right now to protest Dean G’s firing (both the actual firing and the method by which it was carried out), but it sounds like there are plenty of students and professors who are quite angry right now, and I’m confident they’ll make sure their voices are heard.
This was a bad, bad decision, and once the law school’s ranking drops and its alumni donations dry up (along with its prospective applicant pool), I suspect the Provost will realize this much. It'll probably take 3 or 4 years for this to happen, but it'll happen. Just watch.
