Col­lege pres­i­dent re­signs:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIO­NAL -

A state univer­sity pres­i­dent in Kansas whose de­ci­sion in June to can­cel a vir­tual speech by Ivanka Trump an­gered donors and oth­ers re­signed Fri­day, af­ter less than a year in the job.

The Board of Re­gents, which over­sees Kansas’ higher ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, did not say why Wi­chita State Univer­sity Pres­i­dent Jay Golden stepped down, of­fer­ing no de­tails on what led up to it. The univer­sity re­ceived na­tional at­ten­tion - and plenty of crit­i­cism - for drop­ping a vir­tual speech by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s elder daugh­ter for its tech­ni­cal school grad­u­a­tion.

“The Board is thank­ful for his ser­vice,” a state­ment from Bill Feuer­born, the re­gents’ chair­man, said. “We are ap­pre­cia­tive of his hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the univer­sity and are grate­ful for his com­mit­ment to serv­ing stu­dents. We wish him well in all his fu­ture en­deav­ors.” (AP)
