The dean of the University Center in Rapid City has been fired.
South Dakota Board of Regents Executive Director Jack Warner says that Craig Johnson was fired this week, after a hearing with the board and Black Hills State University President Kay Schallenkamp.
Johnson was suspended on Aug. 7.
Warner says he will be able to release details on what led to Johnson's termination when he receives an official report. He expects that to be available in about a week.
Johnson took over as dean in October 2011, replacing the retiring dean, Dean Myers. Johnson previously worked as vice president for community engagement at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, N.Y.
