Washtenaw Voice: Personnel review sheds light on firing of Washtenaw Community College VP
Documents obtained by the Washtenaw Voice reveal that the school's President, Rose Bellanca, and its former head of instruction, Stuart Blacklaw, had repeatedly clashed prior to Blacklaw's firing last week.
Blacklaw was fired March 14, prior to his contract expiring in June.
According to an article in the Voice, WCC's student-run newspaper, Bellanca wrote in a June 28 review that communication between herself and her chief academic officer was poor.
“The faculty and deans know that he does not support the president and believe that there is a conflict between us. With the exception of scheduled appointments and meetings, Stuart rarely speaks to me," the review stated, according to the article.
