I'm pretty confused by it. I thought she was universally liked..?
I don't think people dislike her. Those few times I have heard her speak, she has seemed friendly, if not a great public speaker. But she just does not do anything that is particularly noteworthy for a large percentage students on a regular basis, so there is no real reason for most of us to care.
Maybe she does stuff behind the scenes, and we will all miss her when she is gone - I really have no idea. But unless you are in like Student Senate, the kind of person who likes to cozy up to administrators, or have some legit reason to speak with the Dean (so like 10-20% of the school), then you don't know her and she does not know you.
I don't think this is really true. You might not see what she did to keep the wheels moving, but my understanding was that MGK and Avery Katz were the folks who actually cared and did things during the reign of Schizer (who, in his defense, apparently was pretty widely loved at the start of his tenure and probably checked out). To the extent the law school did anything for students (which, granted, wasn't much) it was at the behest of MGK. To the extent faculty problems were resolved, it was because Avery Katz actually gives a fuck. For areas where you'd really want change, say, in OCS, my understanding was that long-standing internal conflict/power dynamic issues kept those from being resolved. I sincerely doubt that MGK leaving will cause things to change for the better there.
The real mistake goes back to not keeping T-Mo and having him be Dean. Obvious then, just as obvious now.
