''It's this dichotomy between people worried that if Harvard ran a president out, it would become ungovernable, and the view, gaining ground, that actually if we lived through another no-confidence vote and its aftermath, that will make Harvard truly ungovernable." [quoted from an anonymous professor]
(Marcella Bombardieri and Maria Sacchetti, The Boston Globe)
Even at Harvard they don't want to give too much power to the faculty, I find that sad.
Firing a President is really REALLY drastic, but I am beginning to suspect that the situation calls for it. The Harvard Arts and Science faculty are expecting a second no-confidence vote on Feb. 28, with a larger majority than last time (218-185). Let's see if things get resolved before then.
