URBANA, Ill. (AP) - Former University of Illinois Chancellor Phyllis Wise will start teaching in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology in the spring.

Interim Chancellor Barbara Wilson tells the (Champaign) News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1L8wZMR ) that Wise is working with the department this semester to determine what classes she will teach. Wise chose not to take a year-long sabbatical.

Wise resigned last month after the university revealed more than 1,000 pages of emails in which she and others used personal email accounts to discuss university business. As a tenured professor of molecular and cellular biology she will earn $298,926. She won’t receive a $400,000 bonus after politicians complained.

Professor Milan Bagchi is head of the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology. He said Wise also will help mentor faculty and advise graduate students.
