Bowie State provost has resigned
Updated at 8:20 Thursday: BSU confirms provost's resignation.
The Bowie State University provost whose actions prompted a no-confidence vote by faculty will leave her job Friday.
University officials released this statement:
"Effective Nov. 12, 2010, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Stacey Franklin Jones, will relinquish her position at Bowie State University."
The news was first reported in the Gazette newspapers.
Letters sent to President Mickey Burnim by the faculty association described an "untenable" campus climate under the new provost and questioned "who is in charge" at Maryland's oldest historically black university.
Faculty members last month took votes of no confidence in both administrators.
Jones was hired last summer from Benedict College in Columbia, S.C.
