Rollins President, Subject of Faculty Criticism, Resigns

May 23, 2014

Rollins College announced Thursday that Lewis Duncan would be stepping down after 10 years as president and that the transition would happen next month. The announcement said that the board has "every confidence" in the college's "strategic direction." The faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences recently wrote to board members to express concern about Duncan's leadership. In previous years, the same faculty body has voted no confidence and censured Duncan, The Orlando Sentinel reported. Among the points of contention was the creation of the College of Professional Studies, which arts and sciences faculty said was done without consulting them.
