The head of the Texas Southern University’s board today said she’s obligated by law to carry out her duties — until she’s replaced.
Regents chairwoman Belinda Griffin says she’ll continue — despite Governor Rick Perry’s request that the board resign and cease activity. T-S-U has been rocked by financial scandal over the past year.
Perry in mid-April called for the board’s resignation and proposed installing a conservatorship at the historically black school in Houston. Griffin says some T-S-U regents may have been confused about their role after she submitted their resignations to Perry on Friday.
INSITE QUESTION: Should Belinda Griffin stay at TSU or leave now and save face?
