A man who served two terms as acting president of Haskell Indian Nations University has been named president

The university in Lawrence announced on this month that Chris Redman is its new president, beginning July 3.

The university has been searching for a president since November, after former president Linda Warner resigned. She had been sent to handle other bureau duties off campus in September 2009.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Redman's two terms as acting president were from September to December 2009, and May 2010 until March 2011.

Redman's salary was not announced, but when the position was posted in November the advertised salary range was $113,375 to $147,857.

Haskell has more than 1,000 students from about 150 tribes. The school's annual budget is around $14 million.
