ST. LOUIS — The former president of Truman State University in Kirksville performed only one task but earned $215,000 in her year as its consultant.
Barbara Dixon wrote a report on ways the university could save money.
The disclosure was first reported Thursday by the Truman State Index newspaper. Dixon did not return several phone calls to The Associated Press seeking comment.
Board chair Cheryl Cozette said Friday that Dixon also worked to enable a smooth transition between her and the current interim president, Darrell Krueger, but added that is difficult to quantify.
Krueger said Friday he didn't need to call Dixon and didn't feel it was his responsibility to ask her to do any work.
