Two Toyota managers have resigned from an advisory board for an automotive technology program at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale after a professor there criticized the company at a Congressional hearing about the auto manufacturer's safety issues, Bloomberg reported. University officials said that Toyota had indicated that it would have liked to review the professor's work before it was presented to Congress. But company officials said that they weren't trying to be "punitive" in quitting the board. Their resignation letters said that they were leaving "in view of recent events."
