(Scroll down for video) People are calling for a college president to get his job back after being fired for being compassionate.

Brian Carroll was the president of Vatterott College in Kansas City, Missouri.

He said that he was fired from his job for protecting a student.

Carroll said that the 30-year-old student was heading into the woods to sleep for the night.

The temperature reached -2 that night, and Carroll was afraid that the student could freeze to death.

Carroll said that school policy bans him from taking the student into his car so he was not able to drive him to a hotel for the night.

Left with no other choice, Carroll allowed the homeless student to sleep in the school’s library. He also gave the student money so he can refill his medication, which he takes for schizophrenia.

The student promised to be out by next morning, which was Saturday. The student did not take anything from the premises.

However, when school officials learned about the incident, Carroll was fired for failing to protect their property.
