Ball State President Quits Suddenly

January 26, 2016

Paul Ferguson resigned Monday as president of Ball State University, without an explanation and after less than two years in office. The Star Press reported that faculty leaders and others were surprised by the sudden exit and didn't know why he was leaving. While not saying that there was a connection to Ferguson's departure, the newspaper noted that the Indiana secretary of state's office is investigating -- including a criminal probe -- the university's loss of $13.1 million in investments to fraud.
