SIU president launches ethics inquiry into chancellor for hiring family

Chancellor Montemagno speaks during his strawman plan for SIU’s future programs Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017 in the Student Center Auditorium.

From the Daily Egyptian:

SIU’s Office of Internal Audit, Compliance and Ethics on Thursday opened two inquiries related to the hirings of Chancellor Carlo Montemagno’s daughter and son-in-law, as well as searches involving previous coworkers.

The decision by SIU President Randy Dunn comes after the Daily Egyptian on Tuesday reported the hiring of Melissa and Jeffrey Germain into university jobs created for them, that they never formally applied for, and that were never advertised, documents show.

“The information that’s been reported certainly presents a set of facts that is appropriate to examine,” said Dunn, who said he first learned many of the details of the hirings and searches from the Daily Egyptian article.
