Lincoln University President Resigns

Under fire for sexual assault comments, Lincoln U. president resigns

Lincoln University's embattled president, under fire for statements that some critics interpreted as blaming women for sexual assault, resigned Monday. Robert R. Jennings' departure came as the Chester County school's board of trustees was reviewing his performance. The university then announced it was forming a task force on sexual misconduct and reaching out to faculty, students, and parents to improve relations.

Board Chair Kimberly A. Lloyd, who announced Jennings' departure in an e-mail to the campus, declined through a spokesman to comment on the reasons or say whether Jennings received a financial payout. State Rep. W. Curtis Thomas, a Philadelphia legislator, said fellow board members had "a whole list of concerns," but Jennings' comments about sexual assault at an all-women's convocation on campus in September were "the straw that broke the camel's back."
