From the article:
At the time of the January roundtable in Cutler Hall, students, faculty and Athens’ residents were outside protesting the removal of delfin bautista, who uses they/them pronouns and does not capitalize their name, as the director of the LGBT Center. Members of the group spoke about bautista’s impact on the community and demanded answers for their removal.

According to former Post reports, bautista had a positive work record and spent thousands on meals and personal purchases. They filed a grievance, which was denied by Nellis. As this went on, the university was suspended from the Campus Pride Index, which was previously ranked four out of five stars, and began a search for a new LGBT Center director.

That's clear as mud.

I agree that Presidents should be accountable to media and hold regular media briefings.

And as this unfolds, to progressive minded young people, this could help add to the enrollment hits.

Honest question: why does “delfin” refuse to capitalize their name?

They filed a grievance. Who filed a grievance? And don't hit me with who's on first. :)

Yep, and this: "bautista had a positive work record and spent thousands on meals and personal purchases." How's that for a contradiction?

That reads funny, but makes sense with the rest of the sentence:

According to former Post reports, bautista had a positive work record and spent thousands on meals and personal purchases.

They're just listing two separate Post Reports, with links, boy when you remove the links it makes the thousands in spending sound like a good thing.
