Stephens Calls for Montemagno To Step Down

In case you missed the column in the Wednesday Carbondale Times, available for free in finer newspaper racks around town, Murphysboro mayor Will Stephens calls for Chancellor Carlos Montemagno to step down, citing a lack of confidence by members of the region in his ability to lead SIUC. The major reason Stephens cites is the recent incident of nepotism on campus, when jobs were made after Monetmagno's hiring for his daughter and son-in-law. Although Monetmagno has denied asking for the university to provide jobs for them, they did get jobs and not jobs that were advertised to the general public. Doubtful it will cause him to resign or for the BoD to call for his resignation, as Glenn Poshard committed "accidental plagiarism" a decade ago and remained in his position.
