Ursinus Board Chair Quits Amid Uproar Over His Tweets

September 9, 2016

Michael C. Marcon, facing criticism over his comments on Twitter, resigned Thursday as chair of the Ursinus College board. Marcon met with students and faculty members in recent days to try to reassure them, but many have said he should not remain as board chair, and one other board member already quit in protest over the tweets. Marcon, an insurance executive, has made tweets about who should and shouldn't wear yoga pants, and written that Caitlyn Jenner's speaking fees mean there is no gender wage gap.
