OU Eastern Campus Dean Resigns
(2007-10-25)

(WOUB) - The dean of Ohio University's Eastern campus is stepping down.

OU says Paul Bibbins has announced his resignation, effective Dec. 31.

He's taking a job as president of a private nonprofit educational foundation in Virginia.

Bibbins has led the St. Clairsville campus since 2004.

His tenure was marked by a name change of a building on the Eastern Campus.

Last year, Bibbins received an email from former Congressman Bob Ney asking that the Robert W Ney Health and Physical Education Center be renamed.

The building was dedicated in 1997 in appreciation of Ney's work in the Ohio Senate obtaining funding for the project.

Ney resigned from Congress last year after being convicted on federal corruption charges.

The university's board of trustees approved the request last December.
