Winthrop University Fires President

Posted: Updated:
Rock Hill, SC - Winthrop University unanimously decided to fire Jamie Comstock William this afternoon.

The Board released a statement saying the decision was “was clear and convincing to warrant immediate termination.”

William was suspended after the board said she violated the school’s ethics by hiring her husband and lying to the Board about other issues.

The board believes the “trust between the President and the Board are crucial for this university, and any university, to thrive.  And once candor and trust are irretrievably broken, decisions must be made to chart a different course.”

Winthrop University has elected Provost Debra Boyd as acting president.
