West Liberty President Resigns Amid Ethics Review

March 12, 2015

A combination of a state ethics charge and a faculty vote of no confidence appear to have driven West Liberty University's president out of office, The Charleston Daily Mail reported. Robin Capehart, president of the West Virginia university since 2008, resigned Wednesday. He faces state ethics complaints that he misused his office to promote a movie made by his film company -- charges Capehart has denied. The public institution's Faculty Senate voted no confidence in the president last week.
