The University of New Mexico Board of Regents is holding a meeting Wednesday to discuss possibly suspending or firing university President Bob Frank in response to a report critical of his management style.

The Albuquerque Journal obtained the report, which found some staff members said Frank at times displayed a temper and could be condescending and sarcastic.

Report author, attorney Alice Kilborn, wrote that she saw evidence of "shades of a hostile working environment."

Others interviewed for the report said Frank cared about staff and that the bulk of their interactions were pleasant.

Frank said last week that work in the president's office at times has been stressful, but it would be "inaccurate to describe it as a hostile work environment" and he said he hadn't seen the report.
