Associated Press reports on sequence of events in Maki rehiring

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Thomas K. Harden has been adamant that no re-hiring deal was struck before chief business officer Tom Maki retired last March. The Associated Press, however, reported Thursday that documents the AP obtained from the school through an open records request appear to “raise questions” about whether an informal agreement was, in fact, in place. University officials reiterate they believe they followed ETF guidelines and UW System policies in bringing Maki back on a temporary basis. A full version of the AP story is archived online.
