President Steps Down at Virginia State

November 3, 2014

Keith Miller, president of Virginia State University since 2010, announced his resignation Friday, amid growing criticism from student groups and others, The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. The university has suffered from enrollment drops, lost revenue from those declines and cuts in state support. Many students question how the historically black institution has responded to these challenges. A statement from the university said that its board and Miller agreed that Virginia State should "move in another direction strategically." Students said that they were pleased the president was leaving, but disappointed that other senior administrators were not leaving as well.
