Former CCC president resigns from Adams State


April 6, 2018

DENVER — Adams State University President Beverlee McClure has resigned, ending a tumultuous tenure marked by accusations that she bullied faculty and staff, failed to stem financial and enrollment problems and wore a Halloween costume that appeared to mock working people.

The Denver Post reports the school's Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of McClure March 31.

McClure, a former president for Clovis Community College, was appointed president of Adams State on July 1, 2015. A university statement says she guided the university through a period of transition with its distance-learning programs and helped forged new partnerships in the San Luis Valley.

But in February, the trustees placed McClure on a leave of absence after determining her priorities were not aligned with the governing board.

A phone number for McClure could not be found Thursday.
