BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — The president of Kellogg Community College has returned the job after being placed on paid administrative leave.

“Effective immediately, April 16,2014, Kellogg Community College President Dennis J. Bona is returning from his non-disciplinary paid administrative leave,” the Kellogg Community College Board of Trustees said in a Wednesday statement.

Bona had been on non-disciplinary, paid administrative leave since March 27 as an investigation looked into his interactions with college personnel.

The investigation is “complete,” the statement said, and “the Board of Trustees is satisfied that adequate evidence does not merit his continued leave.”

The full statement from the Kellogg Board of Trustees:

“Effective immediately, April 16, 2014, Kellogg Community College President Dennis J. Bona is returned from his non-disciplinary paid administrative leave.

“The investigation into concerns about Dr. Bona’s interactions with College personnel is complete and the Board of Trustees is satisfied that adequate evidence does not merit his continued leave.

“The Board of Trustees expresses its gratitude to the College administration, faculty, staff, students and community for their understanding during this time.”
