Manhattanville College president steps down
The president of Manhattanville College has announced that she is stepping down after just under two years, saying that she simply met the specific goals that she was hired to achieve.
Molly Easo Smith was appointed as president in 2009, and was criticized for the way the college handled the on-campus murder of a student by her mother in their Manhattanville home.
Students had also blamed Smith's administration for the resignation of two popular administrators.
