Students Call On NAU President Rita Cheng To Resign

Northern Arizona University President Rita Cheng used tens of thousands of dollars in university money for international travel, according to a recent audit.

Now, students across the social and political spectrum on the Flagstaff campus want Cheng to resign. So far, though, she has resisted.

And she doesn’t seem likely to relent, nor do her students. Joining The Show to tell us more is Kaitlin Olson who has been covering the fallout for the Arizona Daily Sun. Welcome to The Show, Kaitlin.

The Show also reached out to Rita Cheng’s Office to ask her to comment on this story, but she declined.
