The housecleaning at Niagara County Community College continues as another top administrator has resigned.

Luba Chliwniak, vice president of academic affairs, submitted her resignation effective March 1, the college announced Monday in an internal email.

Chliwniak led the college for four months after the sudden resignation of former president James P. Klyczek, who faced mounting criticism after two scandals revealed by 7 Eyewitness News involving contracts and sexual assaults on campus

Security director Francis Giles resigned in July after the sexual assault investigation. The college started new programs to deal with sexual assault after the story.

Chliwniak served as officer-in-charge of the college until Sept. 12, when Dr. William J. Murabito was appointed interim president. 

Chliwniak will work full time through January and part-time during February to finish up some of her work, the email stated.

Through college officials, Chliwniak did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
