Former U of Iowa president leaves faculty position

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The former president of the University of Iowa has left her faculty position.
  
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that Sally Mason submitted her letter of resignation last month, saying she wouldn't return to teaching or research at the university.
  
Mason was president from 2007 until July 31, 2015, when she transitioned into a tenured position with the Biology Department. On June 30 Mason completed the terms of a five-year deferred compensation agreement that paid her $625,000. The plan, approved in 2011, called for $25,000 in deferred compensation for the first year and $150,000 for every year after that. UI officials have confirmed the payment was processed this month.
  
Her husband, Ken, also has left his position with the Biology Department.
