Protests at Morgan State Over Ouster of President
Students, faculty members and alumni are protesting the decision by Morgan State University's board not to renew the contract of David Wilson as president, The Baltimore Sun reported. Wilson's supporters point to progress at the university in the three years he has led it, and the lack of any information from the board about why it decided to seek a new president. The board chair on Thursday continued to defend the vote to oust Wilson and not to give any explanation for the decision. Only weeks prior to the vote, Wilson received a positive evaluation from the board.
