Chancellor Martin leaving UW-Madison for presidency at Amherst CollegeI wonder why she's really leaving.

University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor Biddy Martin, who built a reputation as a visionary thinker and defender of the university’s role as global public research institution, announced today (Tuesday, June 14) that she’s leaving the university to become president of Amherst College.
Maybe the USDA/NIH joint investigation report is coming out and the university needs to be able to say that the poorly run system was a result of Biddy's meddling and mismanagement, and that the bad egg is gone, so there is no one left to blame.
Another free pass perhaps.
