Central State University President Jack Thomas steps down
Central State University President Jack Thomas will not renew his contract.
Monday, he announced plans to step down as university president and become a tenured professor when his contract expires at the end of June.
Thomas’ pending departure comes amid recent controversies including allegations of bullying and belittling women in administrative positions who were later demoted. At least five allege mistreatment.
Two are suing the university, reportedly saying they were unfairly demoted and retaliated against because they were “outspoken Black women.”
The CSU Board of Trustees is currently searching for Thomas' successor.
