Haskell President Departs

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The president of Haskell Indian Nations University plans to resign soon to take another position in Oklahoma.

The Lawrence Journal World reports that Chris Redman made the announcement Tuesday in a message to students, faculty and staff. In the memo, Redman said he’d be moving closer to his family after being offered a new position.

Redman wrote that the “choice was difficult.” But he added that he’s been given a “great opportunity to continue to serve Indian Country in a new capacity.”

The note included no additional details about Redman’s new job.

Haskell spokesman Stephen Prue says Redman and other officials wouldn’t comment beyond the memo, out of a desire not to draw attention away from Friday’s commencement ceremonies. Redman says more information will be released after commencement.
