University of Texas at Arlington's Indian-American Prez quits

Houston, March 22 (UITV/IANS)- Hailed as a visionary in many academic journals, Vistasp Karbhari, the Indian-American President of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), has resigned amid reports of a probe into an admissions scandal, a media report said.

The sudden resignation on Friday of Karbhari, a civil engineer who has served as the institute's president since 2013, came as a surprise to staff and students, said the American Bazaar report on Saturday.

Reports of an investigation into his role in an online nursing education program run by an outside vendor had been doing the rounds in academic circles for some time now.

Karbhari's resignation was being linked to an investigation that probed allegations of improper ethical and financial dealings with the vendor. Its report was made public just a day before.

University members received the news of Karbhari's resignation through a letter by University of Texas System Chancellor James Milliken.
