Former U-C Chief Gets Golden Parachute

Former University of Cincinnati President Greg Williams will receive nearly 1.3 million dollars from the school during the next two years.

The payments include a bonus, a salary for his faculty position at the U-C law school, and a consulting deal. Williams resigned on August 21st - six days before the start of fall classes - for what he called "personal reasons." University officials meanwhile report nearly 42-thousand students enrolled for the fall semester, down slightly from a record high set last year. Officials have not commented on reasons for the decline.
