Bite-sized college and higher education industry news

  • California: Susan Lamb will take over as interim chancellor of the embattled City College of San Francisco after prior leader Art Tyler suddenly stepped down Friday. Tyler led the college through a difficult 19 months that included multiple threats to its accreditation. Tyler says he plans to stay with the school as vice chancellor of facilities (Diverse Issues in Higher Education, 6/8).
  • Michigan: Sue Snyder, Michigan's first lady, hosted the first statewide summit on preventing campus sexual assault yesterday. At the summit, state police announced $500,000 in grants for prevention and education programs. Snyder says she plans to visit campuses across the state during the upcoming school year to see what they learned and further discuss best practices (AP/Monroe News, 6/9).
  • Pennsylvania: The national office of Kappa Delta Rho (KDR) expelled 38 members of the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) chapter for circulating illicit photographs over a private Facebook page. Some of the photos showed nude women who appear to be asleep or unconscious. The decision comes in the wake of Penn State's announcement that its chapter of KDR will be suspended for three years. Fraternity leaders say they are working to improve programs for preventing sexual assault and substance abuse (Miller, Patriot-News, 6/8).
