The Portland Community College board voted Monday night to part ways with Jeremy Brown, the college president.
Board members unanimously approved a separation-in-service agreement that removes Brown from the position he has held for less than two years. The agreement included a $300,000 severance payment.
“This is a mutual parting of the ways,” Deanna Palm, PCC board chairwoman and president of the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce, said after the May 18 meeting. “The board and Dr. Brown realized they were each heading in different directions and have agreed to this separation-in-service.”
Palm said the board “thanks Dr. Brown for his service,” and “wishes him well in future endeavors.”
Under the four-page separation agreement, Brown will be on paid leave (with full benefits) until June 30, when his employment with PCC officially ends. On July 1, Brown will receive a payment of $100,000 (minus withholding) for wages. He also will be paid for his unused vacation time.
