Female university president who dressed up as an obese plumber with a prosthetic belly and rotting buck teeth is put on leave from her $205,000-a-year-job

Beverlee McClure put on leave over 'offensive' costume

  • Beverlee McClure's 'offensive' costume included a fat suit belly, fake teeth and yellow glasses
  • It sparked outrage on the Adams State University campus, in Colorado, after the photos began circulating
  • McClure has also been accused of bulling faculty and staff, and failing to stem declining student enrollment
  • Last week, she was put on leave, because, according to the board, 'the priorities of the current board are no longer congruent with the priorities of the president'
  •  McClure, who is paid $205,000 a year, insists her critics are simply sexist 

The president of Adams State University has been placed on leave after she dressed up as an overweight, bucktoothed plumber for Halloween.

Beverlee McClure's 'offensive' costume, which included a fat suit belly, fake teeth and yellow glasses, sparked outrage on the Alamosa campus, in Colorado, after photos began circulating.

It appears to have been the final straw for McClure, who became the president's first female president in 2015, who has also been accused of bulling faculty and staff, and failing to stem declining student enrollment, the Denver Post reports.

Last week she was placed on leave by the school's board of trustees.

'It just showed her contempt for the working people in the community in Alamosa, which is very blue-collar and working class,' said former faculty member Danny Ledonne of her costume.

'But that is McClure. She cultivated this campus culture of bullying and backstabbing, and anyone who didn't agree with her or her group were thrown under the bus.'

Trustees would only say that McClure had been placed on leave because 'the priorities of the current board are no longer congruent with the priorities of the president, and the parties are therefore working to accomplish a mutually agreeable resolution.'

Dr. Matt Nehring has taken over as temporary president in the meantime.

McClure was hired for her business acumen but has been criticized by her coworkers for what they say is her abrasive and dismissive attitude.

A current faculty member, who would not give their name for fear McClure would seek revenge, said that the president was renowned as a bully.

'Her people skills are awful because she is vindictive, hyper-sensitive to criticism, and just plain mean. She mocks people less fortunate than herself, like a waitperson with a stutter,' they said.

McClure, who is paid $205,000 a year, insists her critics are simply sexist and accused Ledonne of cyberbully her last year.

She claimed in a statement he was leading an 'internet mob' and called for tougher laws on cyberbullies. McClure also banned Ledonne, who taught in the school's mass communication program from 2011-15 and ran video production business, Emberwild Productions, from the campus.

In response, he set up a webpage, Watching Adams, which provided news coverage on the university and criticized McClure for her poor management skills. 

Referring to his blog, McClure later accused Ledonne of 'terrorism against me and the previous president,'

The ACLU sued the university on his behalf and in 2016, Ledonne's campus ban was lifted and he was awarded $100,000 to settle the lawsuit. She refused to issue an apology.
