Wyoming Catholic College has dismissed its new chaplain after only a few weeks following the discovery of an alleged “pattern of misbehavior” around students including excess drinking and bad language, according to The Catholic News Agency.
The College apparently acted quickly and has been quite candid about the situation. CNA reports that Wyoming’s president Fr. Robert Cook told a former student to go to the police “immediately” when the student complained of possible criminal activity.
Wyoming Catholic College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
[UPDATE 12/6/12: A local police investigation has found no evidence of crimimal acts by the chaplain. The College previously had said its own internal investigation found no sexual misconduct with students, and that the police investigation was not a reason for the chaplain's dismissal.]
