Two University of Virginia historians leave policy center posts over former Trump aide’s hiring

Two top historians are resigning from their roles at a public policy center at the University of Virginia, citing its hiring of a former aide to President Trump for the decision.

William Hitchcock and Melvyn Leffler made the announcement on Monday in protest of the university’s decision to grant a “senior fellowship” to former Trump legislative affairs director Marc Short.

The two are leaving their posts at the Miller Center, a wing of the Charlottesville, Va.-based university that is focused on presidential history and public policy. They will remain as tenured faculty within the university’s history department, according to Politico.

“The appointment of Mr. Short runs counter to the Center’s fundamental values of non-partisanship, transparency, openness, a passion for truth and objectivity, and civility,” the two historians wrote in a resignation letter, before noting many of the issues they have with the former Trump aide.
