Let the "Dean Martin" jokes begin! (Cf. "Back to School" with Rodney Dangerfield.)


The way this was made public is surprising to me. Fordham was on a roll under Treanor. I would have thought this opening would have attracted successful deans wanting to step up or leading professors with clear potential. Not that Martin won't be brilliant in the job, but the way this came about, with Martin not even being on the list of candidates, it has a stopgap feel to it. Even assuming that the faculty is one hundred percent behind and totally supportive of Martin, it has not been packaged in a way that helps him appear from day one as the best candidate who has emerged from a pool of strong candidates.
