UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper announced she'll resign from her leadership role at the end of the year, six months after her husband was banned from campus amid sexual harassment complaints from several women.
UW System President Ray Cross released a letter he sent to Kopper on Dec. 6 outlining the conditions of her resignation. She’ll return to her faculty position as a tenured professor in the psychology department on Dec. 31 and then be placed on administrative leave until the fall semester begins. She’ll continue to collect her $242,760 chancellor salary during that time.
When the school year begins, her salary will be reduced to $118,308 over nine months. The new chancellor will work with her to determine her instructional assignment for the academic year.
