A decision report regarding tenured political science professor John McAdam’s status at Marquette University was recently sent to University President Michael Lovell.continue at Marquette Wire
A Faculty Hearing Committee previously assembled to generate the report to determine if McAdams should be terminated after his role ina widely-publicized controversy.
Bruce Boyden, associate law professor and chair of the committee, confirmed that the report is finished and under Lovell’s consideration. That information was also announced at a University Academic Senate meeting last week.
Lovell will use the report to decide if McAdams will be terminated or continue working at Marquette. The report is not public due to academic statues, but Boyden said it should be available when Lovell makes his final decision.
Cheryl Maranto, the College of Business Administration’s Department of Management chair and University Academic Senate member, said Lovell didn’t provide a timeline that he’ll follow for making his decision.
