Dobelle Placed On Paid Leave

(Westfield, MA) — Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of another investigation into his spending habits. The University’s board of trustees met in executive session for ten hours last night, announcing its decision after midnight. Earlier in the day, faculty and librarians gave Dobelle a vote of no confidence. The embattled university president is locked in a struggle with trustees and state officials over his questionable travel and credit-card use.
