KU paper: Leadership changes come during an uncertain time

KU University Daily Kansan:

The University Administration faces major changes as the University bids farewell to Chancellor Robert Hemenway and Provost Richard Lariviere. In these economically uncertain times, both top-ranking positions will need to be filled quickly by a search committee selected by the Kansas Board of Regents.

In December, Hemenway, after 14 years of leadership, announced that he would retire at the end of the 2008-2009 academic year.

As the University’s chief executive, Hemenway directed all the University’s campuses, research facilities and educational centers.

On March 2, Hemenway announced that Lariviere, provost and executive vice chancellor, had been selected to become the president of the University of Oregon, a position he would take on July 1.

As the chief operations and academic officer on the Lawrence and Edwards campuses, Lariviere is tasked with fulfilling the mission of the University alongside the chancellor, administrators, faculty, staff and students. Lariviere has been at the University for three years.
