AFI Leaders Support Dean Jan Schuette Following Calls for Resignation

AFI Leaders Support Dean Jan Schuette Following Calls for Resignation
One of the country’s most influential film schools is having a tough week.

Members of the American Film Institute’s faculty and administration are voicing their support for AFI Dean Jan Schuette following a letter from the school’s faculty union Tuesday calling for Schuette’s resignation. The letter came two weeks after a union vote of “no confidence” in Schuette’s leadership that passed 35-8, with roughly half of the 87-person faculty not voting. At least 30 faculty members also signed a letter last October expressing deep concern about Schuette’s leadership and the direction of the conservatory.
