A top former official at Wright State University has officially been fired after previously being on paid leave for more than three years. The provost’s termination is related to an ongoing probe into alleged violations of a federal temporary work-visa program.

Officials placed former provost Sundaram Narayanan on paid leave in 2015 after a federal investigation was launched into alleged immigration-law violations.

Wright State University’s Board of Trustees officially approved the school’s 2019 budget at a meeting Friday. The plan includes another round of layoffs. It's the latest chapter in the school's months-long effort to avoid being placed on state fiscal watch.

Wright State President Cheryl Schrader says as many as 40 positions could be eliminated during the coming fiscal year beginning July 1. She says some of those cuts could come through attrition.
