. American University's board of trustees dismissed its president, Benjamin Ladner, last night, accusing him of misusing more than $500,000 in university money since 2002. After deliberating nearly eight hours, the board resolved a conflict that has roiled the campus in Northwest Washington since March, when an anonymous letter to board members said Ladner had been lavishly spending university money on himself and his wife, Nancy, for many years. The letter sparked a controversy that angered many student and faculty groups, led to Ladner's suspension in August and split the 24-member board.

It has become one of the recurring story lines in higher education, as inevitable as the professor-student affair: A president at an upwardly mobile university comes under fire for excessive spending of college funds on his house or travel, or other luxuries. This time it's American University, the 11,000-student private college in Northwest Washington. President Benjamin Ladner is under scrutiny for spending about $600,000 in university funds on, among other things, a car and driver for his wife's errands, trips to Europe for his personal chef, and extravagant parties for his family, according to a university investigation.
