There has been a good deal of argument over whether Paul Mirecki was forced out of his position as department head by the chancellor or by his colleagues. I think we can put this one to rest. His colleagues have issued a postcard supplement to their annual fundrasing letter which repudiates Mirecki’s “fundy” e-mail remarks. This confirms the university’s statement issued earlier and press reports, all of which have said that Mirecki’s colleagues were the ones to ask him to step down.
Bottom line: Mirecki was encouraged to step down by his colleagues, not forced out by adminstrators.
