Judge finds just cause in termination of Northeast Iowa Community College president

Northeast Iowa Community College was justified in its termination of President Herbert Riedel, a judge has ruled.

Riedel was previously placed on administrative leave in October after a series of closed sessions, and Vice President of Finance and Administration Dave Dahms is serving as acting president of the institution. Riedel’s hiring was announced in February 2022.

A private hearing overseen by an administrative law judge was held in late March about Riedel’s possible termination, according to a news release. The judge ruled May 20 that the college had just cause in terminating Riedel.
