Judge Says Tenured Professor at Iowa State U. Deserves to Be Fired

The Chronicle of Higher Education
November 7th, 2014

An administrative-law judge who was asked to decide a disciplinary case against a tenured associate professor of mathematics at Iowa State University has recommended firing the professor, the Associated Press reported.
The university’s provost filed a disciplinary charge against the professor in January, alleging “substantial, persistent, and manifest neglect of faculty duties” from 2008 to 2013. The professor, Moulay Tidriri, chose to have the case heard by an administrative-law judge instead of a campus committee.
In a ruling issued on October 27, Judge Carol J. Greta wrote that Mr. Tidriri deserved the “ultimate sanction” for several reasons, including his repeated lack of cooperation with university officials who were trying to evaluate and improve his performance. She cited an “unfavorable learning climate in his courses; his extraordinary lack of productivity in research; and his meager record of service to his profession,” according to the AP, which obtained a copy of the ruling.
