I propose to make the following revision to this page. Do any other editors have concerns?
Holtschneider has been widely criticized by for denying the very popular DePaul professor Norman Finkelstein tenure and then putting him on academic leave rather than letting him teach his final year as is the academic norm (http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=&ie=UTF-8&ncl=1120006322).
My proposed revision
In 2007, Holtschneider affirmed a 4-3 vote by DePaul University's Board on Promotion and Tenure (a faculty board) denying tenure to controversial political scientist Norman Finkelstein.  Holtschneider was criticized by individuals and external organizations, including the DePaul Academic Freedom Committee  and the American Association of University Professors for not overturning the faculty board’s decision. Finkelstein and the university subsequently negotiated an agreement that included placing Finkelstein on administrative leave for the 2007-2008 academic year, the remainder of his contract with DePaul. 
Proposed addition of fact
I propose to add the following fact.
In fall of 2010, 19.5 percent of DePaul's full-time faculty members were people of color.
