The University of Central Florida board of trustees accepted the resignation of president Dale Whittaker last week. Whittaker stepped down amid a legislative investigation into state money that was misspent during the construction of Trevor Colbourn Hall. 

From the Education desk this week we take a closer look at the fallout from the misspent money that led to Whittaker’s resignation and what comes next. We’re joined by the Orlando Sentinel’s Annie Martin, who covers higher education and 90.7’s Abe Aboraya.
