    College of Charleston chooses Lt. Governor as next President

     

    The College of Charleston has chosen Lt. Governor Glen McConnell to be its next president. Students are unhappy because the school spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a prestigious national presidential search committee who interviewed and vetted hundreds of candidates and put out a list of top 10. McConnell was not on that list. The board of trustees took the search committees recommendations "into consideration" and published their top 3, where McConnell showed up. The students and faculty have openly voiced that they do not like him and the board of trustees completely ignored them and chose him anyway. 83% of faculty and staff voted against McConnell in their senate when he was first announced in the top 3. The blatant disregard for student and faculty opinions is pretty appalling and disturbing. Students are protesting the unfair and sketchy selection process and think that it needs to be completely redone.
