Former NM higher ed chief McClure resigns from Adams State

Beverlee McClure

DENVER — Adams State University President Beverlee McClure has resigned, ending a tumultuous tenure marked by accusations that she bullied faculty and staff, failed to stem financial and enrollment problems and wore a Halloween costume that appeared to mock working people.

The Denver Post reports the school’s Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of McClure March 31.

McClure was appointed president of Adams State on July 1, 2015. A university statement says she guided the university through a period of transition with its distance-learning programs and helped forged new partnerships in the San Luis Valley.

But in February, the trustees placed McClure on a leave of absence after determining her priorities were not aligned with the governing board.

A phone number for McClure could not be found Thursday.

McClure served in a series of high-profile positions in New Mexico, including as the state’s higher education secretary under Gov. Bill Richardson. She later headed the statewide business group, the Association of Commerce & Industry, and is also former president of Clovis Community College.
