Jessica McBride is very happy today because the Chancellor officially approved her indefinite status! (the academic staff equivalent of tenure). This was the final step, and comes after a 7-0 positive vote from the review committee and a positive recommendation from the Dean. Thank you Chancellor Santiago and UWM!!!!! I am one of the ...fortunate people in that I love my job and love working with the students. Celebration time!!!!!
This was further confirmed in a tweet by James Wigderson.
I can't even imagine what would make the committee or Santiago think that this was a good idea.
Perhaps it was her catastrophically poor command of the English language.
Perhaps it was her not so high journalistic ethics standards.
But if I were a betting man, I would have to say that if you consider all the work she's been doing for WPRI lately, I would look for a very large monetary gift from the Bradley Foundation to UWM.
