Yale University says a dean placed on leave over offensive reviews she posted on Yelp has left her position.

Pierson College Dean June Chu last month issued a public apology for the reviews including one that referred to customers of a local restaurant as "white trash."

Pierson head Stephen Davis told members of the residential college had left the school -- and the search is on for a replacement.

Chu was placed on leave last month after reviews from her personal Yelp account began circulating on campus. One described movie theater workers as "barely educated morons."
