- Arcadia University and its former president Carl "Tobey" Oxholm III both issued statements to the Philadelphia Inquirer Tuesday regarding Oxholm's Friday termination from the position, but neither side is shedding any light on the reason for the firing.
- In his statement, Oxholm, a former Drexel University administrator, highlighted his accomplishments at Arcadia, said he was never given a reason for being terminated and lamented not having a chance to say goodbye to students.
- In the university's statement, spokeswoman Laura Baldwin said the reason for Oxholm's firing is a confidential issue between the former president and the board of trustees, that Nicolette DeVille Christensen will serve as the university's chief operating officer (as opposed to acting president) and declined to say if the board would conduct a national search for a new president.
