Haskell names new president

KSAL StaffJanuary 11, 2014

Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence has named a longtime university employee to the school’s top position.

The federal Bureau of Indian Education announced Friday that Venida Chenault, Haskell’s vice president of academic affairs since 2004, will become the school’s president effective Sunday.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Chenault also attended Haskell as a student and has held several faculty and administrative positions at the school since 1991.

Haskell’s last president, Chris Redman, resigned in May after two years in the job. Since his departure, Haskell’s chief of finance Michael Lewis has been the school’s acting president.

Haskell offers associate’s and bachelor’s degrees and is one of two higher learning institutions operated by the Bureau of Indian Education. Haskell’s enrollment averages more than 1,000 students per semester.
