President Call Officially Concedes Defeat


It’s official.  QCC President Diane Call sent around the following email this morning to members of the English faculty.  It reads:


It is my decision to accept the recommendation forwarded by the English Department for Dr. David Humphries to serve as its Chairperson, effective November 14, 2012.

In a lengthy meeting with Dr. Humphries yesterday, he expressed his willingness and ability to advance the important work of the English Department in curricular and personnel matters. I have confidence in and appreciate his sincerity to unite the department as a community, in the best interests of the College and our students.

Thank you.

Dr. Diane B. Call
Interim President
Queensborough Community College
The Advocate is still waiting for confirmation that Call rescinded her decision to appoint Vice President Steele to represent the department on the Personnel and Budget Committee in favor of Humphries.  Sources suggest that she has, but an official statement to this effect has yet to be issued.  More soon…
