A Vice Chancellor Sues Over an Investigation

June 28, 2010

Mark Robinson, vice chancellor of student development at the City College of San Francisco, has filed a suit accusing Chancellor Don Griffin of blocking him from getting a college presidency in Arizona by refusing to answer a recruiter's questions, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The suit also accuses an associate dean of calling Paradise Valley Community College and telling people there that he was being investigated for sexual harassment and embezzlement. Sources at the college told the newspaper that Robinson was investigated for sexual harassment, but not embezzlement. Robinson -- who has been placed on leave -- says that an investigation cleared him and that he wants to return to work. But college officials say that the inquiry only cleared him of violating federal laws, and that the investigation did not reach a final determination. The board chair said: "Right now, he's still an employee. He hasn't been cleared ... and he hasn't been dismissed."
