After the faculty of Mount St. Mary's University requested President Simon to resign his post, the president refused, and was at a student rally on Monday garnering student support.
"On Friday, faculty at Mount St. Mary’s asked, by an 87-to-3 vote, for university President Simon Newman to resign by 9 a.m. Monday.
"The time came and went.
"And the university was closed Monday because of a snowstorm, so professors did not meet to discuss their reaction to Newman’s decision.
"They will later in the week, said David McCarthy, secretary to the faculty.
"Newman was on campus for a student rally Monday morning and thanked the students for their support."--Susan Svrluga, The Washington Post
