Discrimination at Rowan College at Burlington County?

Pemberton, NJ – Rowan College at Burlington County has removed president Paul Drayton Jr. from his post and launched an internal investigation into a discrimination allegation filed by an employee.

Rowan College at Burlington County, formerly known as Burlington County College, is an accredited, co-educational, two-year, public, community college located in Burlington County, New Jersey. The two-year community college enrolls more than 10,200 students and has main campuses in Mount Laurel and Pemberton Township.

On August 24, 2017, the college’s employee filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”). That same day, the college’s assistant director of human resources was notified about the discrimination and sent a “courtesy copy” of the EEOC charge by the discrimination attorney who represents the employee. The employee’s name was redacted in the letter, and at this time details about the nature of the complaint or specific claims are not disclosed.

However, as the EEOC is a federal agency that enforces civil rights laws against discrimination in the workplace, including age, disability, race, religion, sex, and sexual harassment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The EEOC only makes charges public if it files a complaint against an employer in federal court.

On August 30, 2017, Rowan College’s board of trustees unanimously voted at a special meeting to place the president on paid administrative leave “pending a thorough and complete investigation and resolution of the complaint.” While on leave, he will continue to be paid his whopping $203,206 annual salary.

In March 2015, Drayton, 57, of Mount Laurel, New Jersey was chosen to be the college’s president. Prior to becoming president, he headed the Delaware River Port Authority, was an administrator at Temple University, was a lawyer in the office of former New Jersey Gov. James J. Florio and, before that, for a U.S. Senate committee.

Moreover, he is no stranger to bad press and controversy. In the past, Drayton has made headlines for a lawsuit against a previous employer, his default on a business loan, failure to pay child support, and political power struggles.

It was also decided by the Rowan at Burlington County trustee board to name Michael Cioce as acting president. The college’s spokesperson stated, “Cioce has led a number of initiatives that have improved the campus and academic experience for students, and the board has full confidence in his ability to sustain the college’s growth.”

Surely we will learn more details about the possible scandal on Rowan College’s campus, such as what is the basis of the discrimination complaint and if Rowan will be returning to office.
