Senator Proposes Separate Boards for Each College

Republican Sen. Gray Tollison of Oxford took steps Tuesday to introduce a bill that would create individual boards of trustees for each of the eight universities, with the power to hire and fire presidents. The current 12-member College Board would retain a coordinating role.

Tollison acknowledges the proposal is unlikely to pass with only a few days left in the legislative session, but says he wants to spark discussion. The move comes as critics of the Jones decision continue to speak in his support.
