Brian Carroll, the former campus president of Vatterott College in Kansas City, was fired on January 9th for letting a homeless student sleep in the school library.
Carroll and others at Vatterott had actively been trying to find the student an affordable place to stay, but time and inclement weather were not on their side. Temperatures were below zero degrees, and the student had nowhere else to go. Vatterott's management team terminated Carroll for putting the school’s equipment at risk, even though the student did not cause any damage or disruption.
Evidently the school’s equipment meant more to management than the student’s safety.
