The president who glibly said that struggling students are like "bunnies" and that you need to "put a Glock to their heads", has received a 87-3 vote from the faculty to resign as president.

"Amid a national controversy over academic freedom, the faculty of Mount St. Mary’s University voted overwhelmingly Friday afternoon to ask President Simon Newman to resign.

"In an 87-to-3 vote, the faculty in a letter asked Newman to step down by Monday morning. The faculty stopped short of a no-confidence vote, something that had been discussed during the week, choosing to ask for resignation instead."--Susan Svrluga, The Washington Post
