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.
