Roxbury college leader to step down
Oversight record prompted US audit; faculty defends Gomes’s leadership
Roxbury Community College President Terrence Gomes stepped down Monday after weeks of allegations against his administration - including accusations of underreported crime, financial mismanagement, and missed educational opportunities - left the campus roiled. RCC’s trustees will next meet on June 26 and are expected to nominate an interim president within two weeks. Gomes’ ouster was no surprise, but it left many wondering what could be next for the school, which is facing a wide-ranging audit by the Department of Education.
