Gwendolyn Boyd, President of ASU, was fired earlier today. The vote was 8-6, and was taken for Boyd’s failure to “maintain the confidence of the Board.”
Pressed for comment, Boyd said she was, “trying to grow out the revolving door and all of the issues that continue to surround it. I thought we were moving in the right direction. I really do feel for the students. I think they deserved a greater chance. But I wish the students and the university all the best.”
Governor Robert Bentley, who as head of the state is also head of all public university state boards was not in attendance at the meeting. His office said he had no comment on the termination.
“I love Alabama State. I love the students and faculty, and I hope they will continue to move forward and do great things”-Gwendolyn Boyd
