“You have to live within that budget,” said Michael Bridges, chairman of the WSU board of trustees. “That cannot continue under Dr. McCray’s leadership.”
McCray has served as a university president, at one institution or another, since the early 1980s until his retirement in 2005.
McCray began his presidential career at the University of North Florida in 1982. He became president of California State University Long Beach in 1988, president of Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois in 1993 and finally president of National Louis University in Chicago in 1998.
McCray declined to comment today on his appointment today, said spokesman Seth Bauguess.
