“I very carefully and thoroughly reviewed the record in this case as this is a very serious matter.  After doing so, I concluded that termination of Dr. Valencia’s probationary contract was warranted. I have notified Dr. Valencia of my decision, and I have directed that Dr. Valencia’s employment contract with the University will terminate at the end of October.”
