U. of District of Columbia Fires President
December 20, 2012

The board of the District of Columbia voted Wednesday to fire Allen L. Sessoms as president, The Washington Post reported. A statement read by the board chair said that the trustees decided to go "in a different direction," but did not provide details. During the four years Sessoms was president, he helped create the university's community college -- a step many have said was long overdue for Washington. But Sessoms has been criticized for his travel expenses, and he has of late been proposing plans for significant budget cuts, including layoffs.
