Embattled educator resigns

The week's news at a glance.

University of Colorado president Elizabeth Hoffman stepped down this week, in the face of rising criticism over her handling of a pair of scandals. Critics said Hoffman had failed to clean house quickly enough in the athletics department last year, when reports surfaced that the football program had lured recruits with alcohol and sex parties, where several coeds said they had been raped. The pressure on Hoffman increased last month, when a paper by Colorado professor Ward Churchill surfaced, comparing the 9/11 victims killed in the World Trade Center to the mastermind of the Holocaust, Adolf Eichmann. “Everything was focusing on her in a negative way,” said university regent Patricia Hayes. “She was in a lose-lose situation.”
