Stop hiding report on business school dean

Shawnee Vickery of the Broad School of Business, joined by other faculty members, asked the Board of Trustees to increase transparency from former dean Sanjay Gupta, Friday, Dec. 12.  16, 2022, during the MSU Board of Trustees meeting.

Faculty, business school board members, students and donors condemned the MSU board of trustees Friday morning for burying a report on the forced departure of business school dean Sanjay Gupta.

Nancy Vella, a 1979 graduate, told a regular board meeting: “Any cover-up of all the facts by the board will only lead to continued unethical conduct by those in charge and do more harm to this university. “How can your board members pretend nothing happened? Why don’t you pursue transparency?”

At issue is an investigation into Gupta’s forced removal as business school dean ordered by law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan. Interim Chancellor Teresa Woodruff, then provost, forced Gupta to resign after determining that he had not reported sexual misconduct to the university’s Title IX investigations office.
