ISU President Resigns, Assault Investigation Continues


Illinois State University President Timothy Flanagan has resigned. Flanagan is being investigated by ISU police after a former campus employee accused him of assault.

 

He stepped down during a special Board of Trustees meeting Saturday. The resignation took effect immediately.

 

Then-superintendent of grounds R. Patrick Murphy claimed that Flanagan's saliva hit him in the face, that Flanagan's arm hit his torso and that Flanagan yelled at him on Dec. 5 outside the president’s university-owned home, according to a police report.

 

Murphy was fired five days after the incident.

 

Prosecutors are still reviewing the case. Even though Flanagan’s resignation is effective immediately, he will get a lump sum severance of $480,000 and will be allowed to stay in the presidential residence through May.
