NEW: Report Claims Former RWU President Resigned After Harassment Allegations
Monday, August 15, 2011
Former Roger Williams University President Roy Nirschel resigned after the university launched an investigation into sexual harassment allegations made against him, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Nirschel abruptly resigned last year and both he and the university never offered a reason.
According to the report, “The university's trustees used a curt campuswide e-mail to declare the immediate end of Mr. Nirschel's tenure, stating no plans to hold so much as a farewell reception for a president in his ninth year.
Attempts to reach a spokesperson at Roger Williams were unsuccessful.
