Burlington College scandal followup

Friday evening, FP and Sonny attended an emergency board of trustees meeting at Burlington College to which the public was invited. It began with an extraordinarily well-written statement read by one of the student representatives followed by a short board discussion. The discussion confirmed that the statement accurately reflected the overall sentiments of the student population but never directly addressed the concerns of the students.   It ended up being a very short meeting which was cut off before the faculty representative, Sandy Baird was allowed to speak. They then excused non-board members to have an “executive session.”

Executive Session Conclusion:

Draft Statement:

1. The board will have drafted a grievance policy by March.

2. The board will bring in an outside person to conduc an unbiased climate study of staff and faculty.

3. The board will “look at” the governance of the institution.

4. Everyone on the board voted to confirm the presidency of Jane Sanders except for Sandy Baird, the faculty representative, who abstained because Sanders has the power to fire her.

“Who would trust those people to write a good grievance policy when they are the same people who gave Jane Sanders a vote of confidence?”

11/14/08 Interview with former Burlington College professor Genese Grill

A continuation of the conversation we had on October 24th with students from Burlington College about the firing of Genese Grill Ph.D., a much loved professor of writing, literature, cultural studies with just a few weeks left in the semester.  In this interview, Genese tells the Howie Rose Show how Jane Sanders, president of Burlignton College and wife of VT Senator Bernie Sanders (I) gave her only 15 minutes to vacate the office she had worked in for the last 5 years.  We also hear from Greg Guma, our politics man and, incidentally a former employee of the college. He provides us with a historical perspective on the institutional problems that Burlington College has experienced since its inception in 1972.
