In the time since, the former dean of the School of Architecture has framed the story of his dismissal as a tale of “identity politics,” “academic authority,” and “codes of silence.” University administrators see it differently: The professor repeatedly failed to comply with policies, they say, and “damaged the educational interests” of students.
