Prairie State College plagued by accusations of nepotism, secret ballot
(MCT) — Faculty cried nepotism when Prairie State College created a temporary administrative position for the board chairwoman's stepfather about a year ago. Now the two-year college has hired the same relative for another new $80,000-a-year post, this one with no expiration date.
Neither job was posted. There was no search committee or field of other candidates. And fallout from the most recent appointment has resulted in a bizarre chain of infighting, a walkout protest and subsequent secret ballot on the board that governs the Chicago Heights public college with a nearly $50 million annual budget.
