College of New Rochelle’s President Steps Down Amid Financial Investigation

Judith A. Huntington, president of the College of New Rochelle, resigned on Saturday amid trustees’ concerns over “significant unmet financial obligations” that the Catholic institution in New York state is facing, The Journal News reported.

The chair of the Board of Trustees said in a statement that the unmet obligations had accrued over time, but that the board had learned of them only recently. The board has hired a forensic accountant and an outside law firm to investigate the matter. It has also hired an expert to “restructure and manage the college’s finances.”

Dorothy A. Escribano, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, has been named interim president.
