Alumni Feud with Catholic College is an interesting September 28, 2007 Detroit Free Press article which discusses a feud that is going on at Ava Maria Law School. As the article states:
By failing to earn and maintain support of alumni, the law school administration has "turned the greatest advocates for the law school to their greatest adversaries," said Justin Berger, a 2003 graduate of the law school, who sits on the alumni board of directors.
The board's move followed a rebuke earlier this month from a group of Catholic law professors from around the country. The group issued a joint statement sharply criticizing the law school administration's "failure to live their Christian commitment."
Dobranski says he has no intention of resigning. Monaghan declined to be interviewed.
The tension, Dobranski said, is over the law school's move from Ann Arbor to Florida, where it will join Ave Maria University in the emerging town of Ave Maria, both spurred by about $300 million from Monaghan. . . .
This is a story to watch.
