Former UW-W Chancellor Beverly Kopper on Paid Leave Again

Per the Gazette, “Former UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper is not teaching psychology courses on campus this fall as planned and instead is on paid leave, a university spokesman said Tuesday. Kopper resigned as chancellor Dec. 31, months after her husband, Alan “Pete” Hill, was banned from campus in the wake of repeated claims of sexual harassment.

In response to questions from The Gazette, Jeff Angileri, assistant director of marketing and communications, wrote in an email Tuesday: “Beverly Kopper was scheduled to teach four courses during the fall 2019 semester, all of which have been reassigned to other UW-Whitewater faculty and are commencing as scheduled. Her leave is paid.” In an earlier email, Angileri wrote, “Because this is a personnel matter, I cannot comment any further.” Angileri did not answer Gazette questions about when students were notified Kopper would not be teaching, when Kopper’s leave went into effect and if Kopper had requested the leave.

The UW-Whitewater course listing for the fall 2019 semester did not list Kopper as teaching any courses.”
