Colorado State stands by VP named in federal probe

DENVER — Colorado State University officials are standing behind the school’s vice president for research in the wake of a report that accused him of improperly hiring friends while he worked at the Pentagon.

Alan Rudolph joined CSU last September after most recently serving as director of biological and chemical technologies for the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. Rudolph was named in a Defense Department report that found he had improperly secured jobs for people he knew in his previous position there.

The Denver Post reports that CSU provost Rick Miranda sent a note to campus leaders Wednesday expressing support for Rudolph.

His lawyer claimed that contractors, not Rudolph, had the final say on hiring. The report rejected that, noting that contractors are susceptible to pressure.
