The approval of an interim president for West Liberty University is before a meeting of the Higher Education Policy Commission.

The commission is scheduled to meet Friday in South Charleston to take up that matter among many other items on a long meeting agenda.

The interim leadership is needed because President Robin Capehart resigned this week following an ethics complaint and a vote of no confidence by the faculty senate.

Capehart's executive assistant, John McCullough, was named interim president while a search is conducted for a permanent successor.

The faculty senate's March 2 vote of no confidence followed a West Virginia Ethics Commission complaint in January alleging Capehart used university resources to promote his film company's movie "Doughboy."

Capehart has denied the allegations.
