IN THE NEWS: University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman is stepping down July 1, because she wants to end the "speculation" about her future and the future of CU. A new person will undoubtedly take the focus off Hoffman, but the image of CU as a scandal-plagued institution will undoubtedly continue for a time. The mix of sports scandals, alleged rapes, a student's drinking-related death, and the Ward Churchill 9/11-little Eichmann-free speech conundrum, formed a perfect storm over Hoffman. It will take time for the clouds to part.
