FORT MYERS - An Edison State College dean suspended for his role in an illegal course swapping scandal is back to work.
Bill Roshon, the Dean of Professional and Technical Studies, has been named the Interim Dean of Edison's Hendry Glades Center in Labelle.
Roshon has been on paid administrative leave since July 14 and returned to work Monday.
College officials say Roshon is still being investigated for his role in the course swapping scandal, which allowed students to swap core classes with electives. The practice broke state law and sparked an audit.
On top of that, Roshon is also accused of misleading students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. Under his leadership, some students were lead to believe the nursing program was accredited - which wasn't true.
Officials say Roshon will keep his same salary in this interim position. His total compensation package is worth $150,462.37. He is being paid $119,415.37 and his benefits package is worth $31,047.
So why is someone accused of misleading students and currently under investigated for his role in the course swapping scandal being brought back?
A college spokesperson declined to comment, saying the college won't 'discuss personnel matters publicly.
