Campus Reform noted:

Despite resigning amidst a scandal concerning her use of a private email account to conduct official business, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s chancellor nearly came away with a $400,000 bonus.

Phyllis Wise announced last week that she will resign effective August 12, citing “external issues … that have distracted us from the important tasks at hand,” and saying that she would return to a teaching role on the school’s faculty after serving as chancellor of the University of Illinois’ main campus in Urbana-Champaign since 2011.
