Default USC President Stepping Down

USC President C.L. Max Nikias, whose tenure was marked by a significant boost in the university’s prestige and fundraising prowess but tarnished by a series of damaging scandals, is stepping down from his post, the university’s Board of Trustees announced Friday.

The move comes after more than a week of uproar over the university’s handling of a longtime campus gynecologist accused of misconduct toward female students. More than 300 people, most of them former female patients of Dr. George Tyndall, have since come forward to USC, many with allegations of mistreatment and sexual abuse that date back to the early 1990s.

If he knew and failed to act, the firing is deserved. If he did not know, it is stupid.....

Is 'stepping down' not an euphemism for being 'fired' ?

Its the same thing here. As president, you are the figure head for the org. Big scandal, people right or wrong call for your head. You were in charge, so this happened on your watch. You take the fall for it.

Well of course. But there are few of us with this escape ability.
