EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) --  The president of a Catholic college in Maryland is rejecting the faculty's demand for his resignation.
 
Mount St. Mary's University President Simon Newman told scores of cheering students at a rally yesterday in Emmitsburg, "I'm not going to stop."
 
 
The faculty voted to ask Newman to resign after an uproar over his plan to boost the student-retention rate by identifying freshman likely to fail and offering tuition refunds for those choosing to leave.
