Parting is sweet sorrow – particularly if you're a University of Delaware executive.
Since 2007, UD has distributed more than $6 million in payments to top administrators who have voluntarily left their posts or were forced out, according to a News Journal analysis of federal tax records.
Nearly a third of those funds went to former UD President David Roselle, who continued to collect a paycheck four years after he stepped down and while serving as director of the Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library.
During that same period, the state's largest university laid off lower-level staffers by consolidating departments, hired more senior administrators and increased tuition and fees to the point that UD now ranks among the top 50 most expensive public colleges and universities in the country, according to national statistics.
