How so?

just my opinion, but i strongly believe that thomas was "pressured" to retire and if true, justifiably so.  this should help the meac to re-define itself in a positive way if they pick a good person to replace him...

How so?

With the recent departures, you don't think the timing is interesting

I don’t know all the relationships on how it might affect Thomas.  So the former SCSU President was an ally of Thomas and NCCU Chancellor isn’t?

You lose 4 schools and you don't retire. You get a new leader on the council. You don't leave. Now he gets fired and you leave.

What's different between now and March. Or May , or January.

Same issues at are present now were present then. Why retire now ?

Looks like a good candidate for AD or Commissioner.
