UW-Whitewater Chancellor Resigns amid Husband’s Alleged Sexual Harrassment

UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper has resigned her position, effective December 31. Kopper says she is proud of the record high retention and graduation rates, which rank higher than the national average. Kopper was denied a raise following the scandal over her husband’s alleged sexual harrassment of of female university employees. Kopper, however, will continue to be paid her chancellor salary, more than $160,000, while on administrative leave through August of 2019, and then when the new academic year starts, she’ll have to take a pay cut to a 9-month salary of $118,308 and become a faculty member. Kopper plans on entering the class room as a tenured psychology professor.
