Let me see if I have this straight, one of Wendler's direct reports, Associate Chancellor for Diversity Seymour Bryson is calling the university decisions flawed? Maybe he doesn't know what is going on and didn't hear the part about his employer potentially being sued? If he worked for me, he would be sacked for this. You don't get to grandstand and be called as a witness for the claimants and keep your job the in the world I live in.
From the DE article -
Bryson did not mince words about the missing administrators.Shouldn't you figure out where the other people are before chewing them out in public? I generally call people who I want to show up before a meeting like this and see if they can come. Maybe that was to much trouble for Dr. Bryson?
"That shows disrespect. That shows lack of caring," he said about his absent colleagues.
Dietz said he was speaking at a local high school and that he believed Del Rio and Huffman were teaching night classes.
If he was quoted correctly, it would seem that Bryson is above the law at SIU. I think his mission to help black students gain a university education is noble. He deserves respect and admiration for doing the job well for many hard years. Unfortunately, he also seems to have a "get out of jail" card. If you fire him, he will claim you are a racist.
It is hard for me to believe that Bryson survived the DOJ business and now this? Oh well, it is SIU.
Your comments are welcome.
