Daily Outrage: NYC dean used scholarship students as personal servants

WHAT: Ousted St. John’s University dean Cecilia Chang — already charged with embezzling more than $1 million from the Queens, N.Y. college — was rearrested by the FBI for allegedly making scholarship students be her domestic servants.

WHY: Chang is accused of handing out “work-study” scholarships on condition that the students work as her valets for 122 days per year. The students had to clean her house, cook, do her laundry and chauffeur her adult son to the airport at 3 a.m.

HOW: According to the FBI, Chang and her son treated the students abusively and may have demanded illegal services such as concealing the dean’s personal expenses on a college-issued credit card and delivering cash to Chang at an Atlantic City casino.
