Chiropractic college's top administrator steps down

Gloria Niles resigned from her post as academic dean at Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida, the school announced Friday.

Before she was placed on a paid temporary leave in December, she had been the No. 1 campus administrator at the Port Orange campus. The college would not comment on her departure.
Niles did not return calls for comment.

When she was placed on leave, the school said it was 'gathering information' about issues that had 'come to light' about Niles. Neither the school nor Niles ever commented about her name appearing on a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Web site identifying her as being in default of a student loan of more than $97,000.

In July 1997, the department paid off the loan for Gloria Y. Niles-Hasty, a 1990 graduate of Life Chiropractic College-West, said Kevin Ropp, a spokesman for the Health Resources and Services Administration.

She was added to the defaulted borrowers list in September 2000, before she was hired at Palmer.
