Lowell Sun : declared in Report: UCal Berkeley leader got fitness freebies

as declared in BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — The outgoing leader of the University of California’s Berkeley campus improperly accepted free benefits, mostly related to personal fitness, an investigation found.
A report released Friday was heavily blacked out, but the readable portions said Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks didn’t pay for $5,000 worth of a gym membership and 48 personal training sessions.
The investigation concluded in September, but the report was kept private for six months.
He also had an elliptical exercise machine worth at least $3,500 installed at home, the Los Angeles Times reported (goo.gl/meb7Mh).
UC ethics rules bar employees from the unauthorized use of campus resources or facilities or the “entanglement” of private interests with UC obligations.

UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks improperly accepted free fitness benefits, university probe finds

UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks improperly accepted free university benefits, including membership to the campus fitness center, two years of personal training sessions and the unauthorized transfer of exercise equipment from the public gym to his private residence, a university investigation has found.

Carol T. Christ, currently UC Berkeley’s interim executive vice chancellor and provost, will succeed Dirks beginning July 1.
UC spokeswoman Dianne Klein said Dirks apologized and repaid the money owed even before the investigation was completed in September.
Allegations about the chancellor’s fitness benefits were widely circulated on campus last summer and further fueled dissatisfaction with his leadership.

Both Wicks and Dirks told investigators that their workouts were not personal training sessions; rather, they were exercising together as friends.
But investigators concluded otherwise — citing references to personal training in email exchanges, personal calendar notations and the recollections of witnesses interviewed.
