An Alabama State University executive committee has placed two more administrators on administrative leave with pay, according to local news reports.

Edward Patrick, ASU's vice president for business and finance, and Joyce Outler, a senior assistant to the president, were placed on leave Tuesday, according to a report on the WFSA website.

Patrick and Outler worked with ASU President Joseph Silver when he was provost and vice president of academic affairs at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, according to a story on the Montgomery Advertiser website.

On Monday, the committee placed Silver – who came to the university two months ago – on leave. The move triggered a rally that evening and a series of protests and orderly demonstrations across the campus Tuesday.
