The board of Portland Community College is unhappy with the college's president, Jeremy Brown, and is in the process of negotiating a severance package with him, WW has learned.
If Brown and the board can't reach a settlement in private discussions, the board could vote to fire Brown in a public meeting.
Brown joined PCC in July 2013, replacing longtime president Preston Pulliams.
The board announced Brown's hiring in April 2013. Just one month earlier, the State University of New York College of Technology at Canton had announced Brown's appointment as acting president. The SUNY job was to have paid Brown $185,000, according to press reports.
Brown served as president of Dowling College on Long Island from 2011 to 2013, when he was ousted by that college's board, according to Newsday.
