MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Officials say the former UW-Whitewater chancellor who resigned from her position and was set to return to teaching has been approved for paid leave, although the circumstances are unclear.

Beverly Kopper resigned last winter over allegations of her husband's sexual harassment. The University of Wisconsin System agreed to pay Kopper at her chancellor's salary over an eight-month period this year, amounting to about $162,000. She was preparing to return to a full teaching schedule at a reduced salary.

The State Journal reports that UW-Whitewater spokesman Jeff Angileri and UW System spokesman Mark Pitsch declined to give details of Kopper's leave or when it began, saying that it was a personnel matter.
