Questionable travel expenses underlie UALR dean's dismissal

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2012 at 12:15 PM

Arkansas Business gets to the bottom of the recent abrupt departure of Anthony Chelte as dean of the UALR College of Business. An internal audit raised questions about unreported leave time and unauthorized or duplicate travel expenses.

Chelte incurred more than $75,000 in travel expenses during 18 months as dean — including seven trips to France. The university audit recommended reimbursement of more than $11,000, in addition to $3,800 he's already paid back for one French trip. He was removed as dean in January and resigned from the university in April.
