ORU LAWSUIT: SEVERANCE PACKAGE?

August 13, 2008

Richard Roberts is getting a severance package.

This Associated Press article by Justin Juozapavicius quotes former ORU regent Harry McNevin:

“It sends the message that it’s more about money than winning souls.”

I’m not sure what kind of message it sends; because, frankly, I’m just not sure what is typical under these circumstances.  But then again, these aren’t typical circumstances.

Should a resigning university president get a severance package?  Probably.  Should a university president, resigning amidst a cloud of litigation, get a severance package?  Idunno.

Robert’s lawyer, Frank M Hagedorn, implies that Richard may have been promised one.
