Chancellor of Fayetteville State University to Step Down

T.J. Bryan, chancellor of Fayetteville State University, the historically black educational institution in North Carolina, submitted her resignation this past week. Bryan, who has served as chancellor for the past four years, had come under fire recently because of problems at the university’s nursing school where a majority of students failed a qualification examination. A state audit due to be released at the end of this month is also reported to show financial problems at the university. It has been reported that Erskine Bowles, president of the University of North Carolina system, asked Bryan for her resignation.

G. Latonya Hankins, the vice chancellor for business and finance at Fayetteville State University, also submitted her resignation.
