ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the controversies faced by school administrator John R. Silber. It states that he was fired from being the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Texas in 1970. It notes that he opposed the board of regents' plan to split his college into smaller schools. One year after his dismissal, he was named as president of Boston University and led an ambitious program to raise the school's admission standards, cut its sizable deficit worth 2.2 million dollars, and improve the quality of the faculty.
