The board and interim president of the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science resigned Friday, as part of an effort to attract new financial support and to find a path to stability for the financially challenged institution, the Los Angeles Times reported. The university, focused on training health professionals in the low-income, predominantly minority parts of Los Angeles, has been in danger of having assets seized because it cannot make required loan payments. The resignations led to the appointment of new board members coming from a cross-section of academic and philanthropic organizations in Los Angeles.
