Amid Pending Investigation, President of St. John’s Says He Will Retire

New York Times

May 4, 2013


The longtime president of St. John’s University, the Rev. Donald J. Harrington, announced his retirement on Friday, ending a tenure that included successes like soaring student enrollment and campus expansion, but also financial scandal: he acknowledged going on trips with a former dean who committed suicide while on trial for corruption. His retirement comes amid a pending inquiry requested a few months ago by the board of trustees into possible financial improprieties involving officials at the university, in Queens.
