Eight of the ten active full-time faculty members teaching at General Theological Seminary, New York City, have reported very serious problems with the seminary's administration through a number of channels. After being ignored for months, the 8 faculty wrote directly to the seminary's board of trustees about a hostile work environment created by the Dean and President, the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, and then undertook a legal work stoppage. The Board of Trustees responded that they accepted the faculty's resignations, when in fact the faculty members did not resign. The 8 faculty members are Dr. Joshua Davis, The Rev. Mitties McDonald DeChamplain, Dr. Deirdre Good, Dr. David Hurd, Dr. Andrew Irving, the Rev. Andrew Kadel, the Rev. Dr. Amy Bentley Lamborn, and the Rev. Dr. Patrick Malloy.
