Julie Hermann's appointment as athletic director was a serious case of poor judgement by the individuals responsible for protecting the welfare of the Rutgers community. According to recent reports her behavior was egregious while at the University of Tennessee, causing her players mental anguish. That behavior prompted the entire team of 15 girls to write a letter announcing they would not play for her. Her response was, I choose not to coach you. In another case the university was forced to settle a lawsuit regarding wrongful termination of an assistant coach, fired for being pregnant. When confronted by the press she denied both incidents, even stating a video related to the lawsuit did not exist...it did. Our Rutgers community is a family and the principles and values need to start with the leadership positions. We cannot allow someone who would outright deny these offenses occurred to be in a position to possibly corrupt and damage our Rutgers community.

To:
Rutgers board of governors
New Jersey Governor
New Jersey State Senate
New Jersey State House
Demand the resignation of Julie Hermann
Her behavior at Tennessee and her denial of it now show she is not an appropriate fit for our Rutgers community.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The integrity of Rutgers continues to plummet under the leadership of Barchi. All Barchi cares about is the UMDNJ merger - the schools reputation be damned. Julie Hermann is only the latest revelation in the long list of foolish administrative choices.

      Barchi and Hermann must go. Bring back Pernetti - as school President.

      This woman's history of deplorable behavior renders her unfit for this position. Rutgers just can't get it right.

      Barchi & Hermann are an embarassment to my university during what should be be a period of unprecentented pride, the mention of RU in the press makes me cringe.

      Why is this important to you? (Optional)Time to start another petition to get rid of Barchi too. I am not a Rutgers grad but I am a NJ and this whole thing is an embarrasment tome. I am also a NJ taxpayer and therefore have the right to ask for both of them to be fired. If he can't get this straight, howca he make the merger work?
