Burlington College President Quits

September 2, 2014

Christine Plunkett, president of the financially struggling Burlington College, told protesters who confronted her Friday, "I resign. Happy? Goodbye," The Burlington Free Press reported. The newspaper said that other officials indicated that Plunkett had not resigned. Plunkett did not respond to an email from Inside Higher Ed seeking clarification of her status, but on Monday, the board released a statement indicating that she had resigned, and announcing new interim leadership, the Free Press reported.
