Call for Board Resignations Expected in U. of Illinois Admissions Case

July 31, 2009

The head of a committee examining the University of Illinois admissions controversy is expected to call today for all of the university's current trustees to step aside, The Chicago Tribune reported. Abner Mikva, a former federal judge, said he would urge the panel to recommend a mass resignation when the committee meets to draft its report. The former chairman of the Board of Trustees, who is among those who sought special consideration for politically connected applicants to the university, resigned this week and encouraged his colleagues to do the same.
