Nena Torrez, CSUSB professor of education, commented before the March 22 decision by the
California State University Board of Trustees to halt a program that has paid millions to executives who have resigned in recent years — including former Chancellor Joseph I. Castro — until the board reviews a task force’s recommendations.
“We will no longer allow the practices that have hidden, forgiven or forgotten ethical transgressions that reward predators with hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars in secret deals, severance agreements,” Torrez said at the board meeting.
The board’s discussion followed a tense public comment session, during which faculty, staff, students and others shared frustration over a breakdown in Title IX procedures and what was described as “sweetheart” deals for top officials who resigned under scrutiny.
