ThisÂ story from The Poughkeepsie Journal says that the staff of Culinary Institute of America wants the president out, saying he “lowered standards to increase enrollment, pressured teachers to pass unqualified students and suppressed faculty opposition.”
A quote from the story after the jump. Â
The majority of teachers at the Culinary Institute of America say President L. Timothy Ryan is responsible for mismanagement and a decline in academic standards.
By an 85 to 9 vote, the faculty passed a resolution expressing “no confidence” in Ryan’s ability to serve as president. There are about 125 full-time members of the Culinary Teachers Association.
“We can no longer work with President Ryan,” said Marjorie Livingston, an assistant professor of liberal arts.
