Betsy Hoffman Resigns

Filed under: — Different River @ 4:47 pm

Betsy Hoffman, president of the University of Colorado, has announced her resignation “effective June 30, 2005 or whenever the Board names a successor.”

I’ve only heard of her in connection with the Ward Churchill controversy and a seemingly off-the-cuff remark she made about science and math programs which I claimed was related to the Larry Summers kerfuffle, but apparently there was also a (gasp) football sex scandal. According to one report “At least nine women have said they were assaulted by Colorado football players or recruits since 1997,” which was three years before Betsy Hoffman became CU president.

I don’t know all the issues involved, but it seems to me that between her and Ward Churchill, the wrong person at CU resigned.
