A tenured professor at the University of North Georgia has been placed on leave after an incident with a guest speaker earlier this year, The Gainesville Times reports. Vicki McCard, a professor of Spanish, reportedly got into an argument with the speaker that led to her being placed on leave.
A panel of faculty members conducted an informal review and recommended that Ms. McCard be fired, said the university’s associate vice president for university relations, Kate Maine. Rather than request a formal hearing, Ms. McCard agreed to bring in an external mediator and postpone the hearing.
