Deidré A. Keller, who suddenly resigned from her deanship at Florida A&M University College of Law on Jan. 31, said the vision for the law school no longer resonated with her vision for sustained success and that “steadily escalating unreasonable demands” made doing her work “impossible.”

“At this juncture, it is clear that the University’s vision for the College of Law no longer resonates with my vision for sustained success at the College,” Keller wrote in her resignation letter she emailed to Allyson Leggett Watson, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, which the Tallahassee Democrat released on Tuesday. “My efforts to strengthen the College’s student body, its relationship with the bar, bench, surrounding community, its alumni and the University have recently been met with behavior on the part of the University that can only be properly characterized as abusive.”
