Liberty University students are demanding an "open and clean investigation" into school president Jerry Falwell Jr. after explosive news reports detailing alleged self-dealing and the denigration of students and officials during his tenure at the Christian university.

"We should hold the university president at the same standard that me and my friends at Liberty are held to," Ian Parish, a senior at Liberty University, told CNBC in an interview.

Parish was one of the leaders of a group of more than 60 Liberty University students who protested on campus last Friday, voicing their displeasure with Falwell, son of the late school founder and televangelist Jerry Falwell Sr. and a prominent backer of President Donald Trump.

The demonstration was sparked by a Reuters news agency article the day before that reported Falwell had referred to a student in an email as "emotionally imbalanced and physically retarded."
