ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In the wake of a report critical of President Bob Frank’s management style, the University of New Mexico Board of Regents on Sunday called a special meeting to discuss possibly suspending or firing Frank.
The meeting set for Wednesday is the latest development between Frank and the regents, who last week met in closed session for two hours to discuss a report about Frank.
The Journal obtained that report, which found some staff members said Frank at times displayed a temper and could be condescending and sarcastic. It described his behavior at times as “bullying.”
Other people interviewed for the report said Frank cared about his staff, was “generally affable” and the bulk of their interactions “are pleasant.” Report author, attorney Alice Kilborn, wrote that she saw evidence of “shades of a hostile working environment.”
