Michael Roth, a former Scripps College and Claremont Graduate School prof, took the job of Wesleyan's presidency. According to his official bio, he was the founding director of the Scripps College Humanities Institute. He was a student (and radical) at Wesleyan during the 1970s who at one point took over the President's office that he now occupies over the Administration's connections with apartheid South Africa. And now the chickens have come home to roost. Let this be a lesson to any of us who would pressure the school to do anything political.
The Hartford Courant has the story and I have the Claremont College connection:
He earned a doctorate in history from Princeton University in 1984 and took a teaching job at Scripps College and Claremont Graduate School in California. He received tenure three years later, and he was promoted to full professor in 1990.
