Illinois President and Chancellor Trade Blame

September 1, 2009

The president of the University of Illinois, Joseph White, and the chancellor of the Urbana-Champaign campus, Richard Herman, both appeared before the Senate at Urbana-Champaign Monday, each suggesting that the other was responsible for the admissions scandal at the university, the Chicago Tribune reported. White stressed in his remarks that admissions was a "campus function" and that he didn't know about the extent to which the politically influential were receiving special consideration. Herman, meanwhile, said that White had forwarded admissions requests to him. The Senate delayed a vote on resolutions asking for new leadership for the university.
