A for-profit college president says he that he was terminated after offering to shelter a homeless student in the school's library on the school's Missouri campus.

The president of Vatterott College, Brian Carroll, told a local television state that the student, who is schizophrenic, had run of medication and lacked shelter when Mr. Carroll made the decision to allow him to stay in the school's library amidst a winter storm in January.

Mr. Carroll said that the student neither stole nor damaged property, but corporate officials at the school discovered that the student had been allowed to stay in the library through surveillance cameras and fired Mr. Carroll for putting college property at risk.

A school spokesman told the television station that the company does not comment on personnel matters.
