Angela Salas, provost and vice president of academic affairs, has decided to step down from her position at Framingham State University.
Her departure, which came after “much thought, reflection, and discussion,” was announced yesterday, Feb. 19, in a campus-wide email sent by President F. Javier Cevallos.
“It’s vital that any employment relationship be mutually beneficial, and we have collectively realized this was not in our best interests,” he said in the email.
“I wish Dr. Salas nothing but the best as she moves forward with future career opportunities,” he added.
Salas was named provost and vice president of Academic Affairs for FSU April 25, 2019.
She is no longer on campus and The Gatepost was unable to reach her for comment.
Cevallos said Salas was a “wonderful addition” to the campus and a “hard worker,” in an interview with The Gatepost. But, “perhaps not the right fit.”
“She decided she wanted to persue other opportunities,” he added.
Cevallos said he will be back in touch with updates on how the University will move forward together from this point.
“I will have a plan to share with the campus hopefully next week, if not the week after,” he told The Gatepost in an email.
Cevallos explained he will be emailing the entire campus community with these updates.
At time of publication, The Gatepost is still reaching out for more information.
