PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) - Trustees of a New Jersey community college have fired the school’s president who had a year left on her contract.

Bergen Community College trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to fire B. Kaye Walter and buy out the remaining year on her contract. NorthJersey.com reports (https://njersy.co/2rZU9xj ) the board voted to appoint professor of religion and philosophy Michael Redmond as the interim president.

Walter says she was shocked to learn her contract was in jeopardy. Her contract was last renewed in 2014 amid a no-confidence vote from the union representing faculty and staff.

Carol Otis, chair of the board of trustees, says there was “no cause” to the sudden end of Walter’s contract. Otis says the school has complete confidence in the current administrative team during the transition period.
