An Ousted Dean Returns

Western Kentucky reinstated the dean its now ex-provost forced out last week. What does the saga say about academic leadership, especially at institutions facing change?

Institutions often double down on unpopular decisions, fearing they’ll otherwise be perceived as weak.

Not Western Kentucky University. In a speedy show of what many on campus are calling strong leadership, the institution reinstalled a dean whose ouster last week brought down the provost.
The university’s new acting provost, Cheryl L. Stevens, announced the decision to reinstall Larry Snyder as dean of the Potter School of Arts and Letters in a campus email.

Why did Ballman sack Snyder?  I could not find that in the story, only that she had no cause for it.
I will NOT comply.
