B. Joseph White announced Wednesday that he is quitting as president of the University of Illinois System. White has been under fire for months over a scandal in which separate admissions systems were used for the Urbana-Champaign campus for politically connected applicants. While White has tried to distance himself from the scandal, a state panel found that he "failed to exercise appropriate oversight of persons who reported directly to him and who, on a regular basis, engaged in admissions related abuses" and "personally participated in admissions applications in a manner inconsistent with university-sanctioned principles of ethical conduct and fair dealing."
