Some students are challenging the truthfulness of Elsa Murano, president of Texas A&M University, over questions of when she made a job offer, The Bryan-College Station Eagle reported. Murano told student leaders last year that she wouldn't offer anyone the job of vice president for student affairs without consulting them first. But students, using open records laws to obtain the documents, found a job offer had been extended before Murano made that pledge. The dispute concerns just what constitutes a job offer, given that the Board of Regents would have to formally approve any appointment.
