Officials at the financially struggling Mid-Continent University have named a new acting president.
The school's Board of Regents also fired former President Robert Imhoff and his wife, Jackie, who had served as vice president of adult services.
The Imhoffs agreed in February to step down from their roles at the college, but continued to draw a salary until Saturday's vote.
Board of Trustees Chairman Tom Butler said Robert Imhoff was terminated for cause but declined to say more.
Walden has agreed to stay in the post for a month, which will get the school through its May graduation ceremony.
