Betsy Hoffman resigns at Colorado

Big story in the NY Times and another over at the CHE. When she was UIC's provost, she brought in Stanley Fish. Deirdre McCloskey spoke to me about her with high praise. Now this.

Here's a snippet from the article quoting a campus leader and a well-known educational researcher:

Margaret LeCompte, a professor in the school of education who has spoken in support of Professor Churchill, said she believed that a "concerted attack on the university by the right wing" was a factor in Dr. Hoffman's resignation.
The president's comments about McCarthyism, Professor LeCompte added, "may have been the straw that broke the camel's back for the right wing's desire to have her head."
