Roxbury college chooses interim chief
Community college in midst of controversy
Roxbury Community College’s board of trustees nominated a former president of the small Urban College of Boston as its interim president Tuesday night — eight days after its current leader announced his retirement amid controversy over campus crime reporting and alleged financial mismanagement. The board selected Dr. Linda Edmonds Turner, after two other candidates declined the offer. A crowd of at least 40 people spilled into the college’s hallway for the meeting.
