University of North Texas System vice chancellor and general counsel Nancy Footer is heading toward the exit following the resignation of another lawyer at the school who used the n-word during a free speech discussion. 

UNT System Chancellor Lesa Roe announced Footer’s retirement Nov. 12, four days after assistant general counsel Caitlin Sewell resigned. Students began calling for Sewell’s ouster after she used the n-word as an example of protected speech during a Nov. 7 event at UNT called  “When Hate Comes to Campus.”
