Burlington College President Jane O. Sanders has announced her intention to resign, effective October 14. The announcement came as the board of trustees was holding a meeting. Published reports had revealed that one of the items on the agenda was “removal of the president.”
Dr. Sanders, who became president in 2004, is the wife of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. She holds a Ph.D. from the Union Institute. Under her leadership the college purchased a new 32-acre campus and added several degree programs.
Sanders will receive the title “president emerita” and will continue to consult with the college.
