BATON ROUGE — Louisiana’s commissioner of higher education has resigned.Sally Clausen’s resignation will take effect July 1. The Board of Regents announced her departure this morning (Tuesday).

The resignation comes after Clausen quietly retired from her position and then was rehired for the job last year, without notifying the board or other officials. She has received sharp criticism for the move, which gave her a hefty lump-sum payment of $90,000 in the process.

Clausen is Louisiana’s sixth higher education commissioner. She’s been in the job since July 2008, after working as president of the University of Louisiana System and President of Southeastern Louisiana University.
