In an email obtained by The Sunflower, Skerritt addressed several students, colleagues and university alumni with an explanation for his resignation.

“The last year has been interesting and difficult for me personally and professionally resulting in great reflection,” Skerritt said in the message. “The root of my decision lies in a need to preserve my morals and affirm my ethics amidst an influx of operational culture and decisions made within the department and division.

“We must refocus on the students and be transparent about our intent.”

    Everyone knows unethical things are going down at WSU but do nothing about it because it would cost them something.

    But then there are Lystons. Lystons walk out on good jobs because staying means reconciling in his mind that receiving a paycheck from an institution that he knows acts the expense of the others is worth it. And no amount of money is worth it.

    Thank you.
