Reinstate Bronx CC Prof Fired for Collegiality Gap; Deemed That Insufficient Grounds

Posted: Friday, September 19, 2008 12:00 am | Updated: 1:32 am, Thu Mar 3, 2011.

A City University of New York sociology professor has been reinstated to his job at Bronx Community College after an arbitrator found that he had been wrongfully denied reappointment by BCC's president.

John Asimakopoulos was denied reappointment for the 2007-2008 academic year in the fall of 2006 due to"a lack of collegiality" according a letter written by BCC President Carolyn Williams at the time, with allegations made that he was sometimes"combative and hostile" But Richard Adelman, a state arbitrator, decided that CUNY's decision was unjustified and that"a lack of collegialit" was too arbitrary a reason to dismiss the professor.
