It’s not certain there will be a decision immediately, though:
The Iowa Board of Regents will meet Thursday to discuss the tenure denial appeal of Guillermo Gonzalez, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Iowa State, at its regional meeting on the ISU campus.
The meeting is at 8:30 a.m., with a one-hour closed session dedicated to discussing the appeal beginning at 8:35 a.m. The regents will emerge with either a decision on the case or a decision to postpone it.
“The board does not have to decide within the hour time slot given for the meeting, and discussion may take place over the following days,” said Iowa Board of Regents President David Miles.
Also this morning, the regents upheld the decision of Iowa State University officials to deny tenure to Professor Guillermo Gonzalez, who had appealed ISU’s decision, arguing he was discriminated against during his tenure application process because he supports intelligent design.
The regents met in closed session for more than one hour before voting 7-1 to reaffirm ISU’s final decision in the case. Regent Craig Lang of Brooklyn voted no.
Gonzalez said he was disappointed in the decision, and also with the regents’ refusal to let him present his case during the closed session.
