    Maybe I missed it.....but I didn't read anything in the Tribune that would indicate this issue had anything to do with the reduced enrollment at Missouri .....??

    Comments from readers are just that.....axes grinding...

    I can't believe it will have any impact at enrollment at Gonzaga.

    I wouldn't expect any impact on enrollment, considering she was hired after the academic year began. Is "communications" a big thing at GU now?

    I doubt she would have been hired under the past administration.

    Thank you for illustrating the point.

    I'm all for second chances. Emotionally charged situations can lead to awkward decision making. I wonder what we could gleam from a video feed of 30 days from most posters on this board? I myself could probably shock most with a poor decision here and there. Ever see an intoxicated portion of the Zag contingency on the Strip after a loss to St. Mary's? Some choices I witnessed made Click's look pretty tame.

    If she is qualified.....apparently the most qualified to some articles....I personally have some doubts, but, so be it...lets see if it works out. I would not be surprised if this turned out to be "favor" hire.

    My question for Click would be....where does the Romanization of Abstinence within Meyer's magnum opus fit in at GU. Maybe next to President Snow's laissez faire jurisdictional review to governance within the districts? I would be curious if she got the joke.

    Too lazy to go back & look, but I assume most of you were pretty pissed when Few gave Doug Wojcik a second chance last year & continues to do so.

    I'm absolutely embarrassed to have this idiot representing Gonzaga in any way, matter, shape, or form. The last thing we need is for her to inflict the damage she imposed on Missouri which is a horrific attendance decline. The person who hired her needs to be fired.

    Thanks web! I found it interesting that I posted a couple of comments on that thread.

    IMO, these two situations are dissimilar, and I'll just leave it at that.

    Gonzaga University`s reputation just took a huge hit!!! This vile woman should not be teaching anything except maybe Marxism and the repression of free speech.

    So she had a bad, like, 10 seconds of her life in a heated moment, apologized for it the next day, served a serious punishment (losing her job)...and it's "embarrassing" for GU to hire her?
    Really??? Ever heard of google ??? This woman is a horrible little troll.

    She is already bringing great Press but not the kind we need at Gonzaga.
    http://spectator.org/click-bait-at-gonzaga/

    "Gonzaga, a tuition-starved Jesuit school in eastern Washington known mainly for its basketball team, is a big step down, true. Missouri has one of the nation’s best journalism schools. Gonzaga is nowheresville. Moreover, Click was hired for a one-year, non-tenure track position, which means she was pretty desperate."

    "It looks like Gonzaga wanted some publicity, which it is getting. Perhaps some trustees at the provincial Jesuit institution want to shed troubling vestiges of Ignatian spirituality and are eager to hop on the crazy train. Maybe they’re clueless. But the Mermann-Jozwiaks and Rossings who are doing the hiring know what they want and what they are doing. Click might be in their minds a catch.

    Whatever the case, Click’s appointment is another example of the absolutely broken hiring and reward system in higher education today, and the audacity of those who control it."

    I found myself thinking she deserved a second chance. until I spent about 10 minutes of research and found that she has engaged in this type of behavior several times and is truly not sorry for her willingness to threaten the use of violence against a COLLEGE student reporter (and actual criminal act of misdemeanor assault when she grabs the camera from the students possession).

    Then you combine that with her current statements that she is a victim of race and was fired simply for being white lady.............that indicates to me she truly does not understand what she did was wrong....

    as a professor, as an adult, as a person involved in journalism and as a human being the act of trying to use violence to intimidate a reporter from doing their constitutional right should be readily apparent that you are crossing a serious line. It is down right offensive and undermines the foundational principle of our country. Do it once .....ok got caught up in the moment, do it several times indicates a pattern of behavior which arises out of an attitude or mindset. Then to try and claim you are fired because you are a white lady really indicates to me that the mindset is a dangerous one and should not be involved in higher education.

    sadly disappointed

    This exactly. I was disappointed before finding out more, and now reading more thru searches and what not really makes me wonder what gain this gets the school? Bad press is what I've seen. Why would you want someone who shows thru actions she is against the first amendment teaching journalism. Saw a quote saying, "I wouldn't want an atheist teaching Sunday school." Fits the mold here.

    Key points that are being missed here....

    a) it is lecture position only. No tenure track... not even a title of associate professor.
    b) It is for one year only.

    I don't like her actions at Missouri... but I'd prefer to have a bit more faith in the people who interviewed and vetted her at Gonzaga than people on the internet who have only seen a youtube video of her at a singular moment. I'd think they might have a better idea of her level of remorse that she may have expressed and the veracity of that remorse.

    Just sayin'.

    I hear ya, but that was quite a singular moment. A communications professor attempting to shut down a reporter's First Amendment rights, forcibly. One might call it "Trumpian"... lol.

    I hope that the welcoming bosom of GU brings peace and serenity back to her life.

    Not sure I would sign up for her class if I was in ROTC, though. I caught enough flak from Black Dan, but his was entirely in jest. I greatly miss him and Dr. Graue.

    I can say that I've heard alot more about GU from various coworkers in friends than I normally do at this time of the year, and every single comment is a variation on "what were they thinking?"

    I tell them that the only good news I have is what LIZF said, that it's a 1 year, non-tenure-track position.
