New Owner ITT Tech Has Not Named A Successor
Following the layoff of 23 other
employees, Robert Myers, the president of Daniel Webster College,
was abruptly fired on Wednesday. DWC owner ITT Technical Institute
would not comment on the move.
According to a report in the Nashua, NH, Telegraph, Myers was
told Wednesday morning he was no longer an employee of the college
and asked to leave the campus immediately. "I'm still processing
it," he told the paper following his termination. He had been at
DWC since 2005. Prior to that, he had been chancellor of
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's extended campus in Daytona
A source close to the situation who was also let go indicated
that as many as 60 Daniel Webster employees could eventually lose
their jobs. The school has been struggling financially. It had
accumulated $23 million in debt, which forced the sale to ITT Tech.
Following the sale, the college moved from a non-profit institution
to a for-profit college.

The paper reports that, at the time of the sale, Myers had
assured faculty and staff that it would not mean layoffs. In fact,
he had expected some of the school's vacant positions would be
filled. A letter on the school website from Dr. Nadine Dowling, DWC
interim president, makes no mention of the change in
administration. It talks about improvements in campus facilities
and dormitories that have been made since the sale to ITT Tech.
