More than 1,600 alumni and students of Brandeis University and others with ties to the institution have signed an online petition protesting pay to former university president Jehuda Reinharz.
Frederick M. Lawrence, a veteran civil rights lawyer who has served the last five years as dean of the George Washington University Law School, was this week named president of Brandeis University.
Lawrence, 54, will succeed President Jehuda Reinharz, who is joining the Mandel Foundation, an international philanthropy.
Lawrence on Jan. 1, 2011 will become the eight president of Brandeis University, a non-sectarian Jewish institution in Waltham, Mass., with a student body of 5,300.
