U. of Redlands President Quits Amid Budget Debates
Stuart Dorsey, president of the University of Redlands, quit Tuesday, citing divisions on the campus over budget cuts, The Press-Enterprise reported. The university is facing a budget deficit and considering cuts, including faculty positions."I regret that I, rightly or wrongly, have become the personification and focal point of the budget controversy that is raging and threatens to damage that asset," the president said. "Very, very reluctantly and with deep sadness, but out of respect and love for this great university, I have concluded that it is best for me to step aside." The university is considering a plan to close the computer science, Japanese and speech/debate departments, The San Bernardino County Sun reported.
