Iowa State paying admissions official to look for other jobs

Local News

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – For the second time this academic year, a public university in Iowa is paying an administrator to stay home and look for other jobs as part of a legal agreement to quit and not sue.

Iowa State University is paying former senior admissions official Consuela Cooper to telecommute until June 15 or until she finds a new job, whichever comes first.

Cooper has agreed to resign and “not to seek or accept employment with the university at any time in the future.”  

It’s similar to a deal the University of Iowa reached with its new chief diversity officer last August.
