Haskell University endowment association disbands
A group that was raising funds for Haskell Indian Nations University has called it quits, citing a lack of cooperation from President Linda Warner.

The Haskell Endowment Association was formed in 2005 to raise money for the tribal college in Kansas. The group has collected $90,000 but will be turning it over to the American Indian College Fund, with the hopes that it will go to Haskell.

“The new president attended one meeting, and she never communicated with us again,” Doug Holiday told The Lawrence Journal-World. “We repeatedly wrote her and tried to set up meetings. She just didn’t have an interest in working with us.”

Warner, who became Haskell president in 2007, said she attended every meeting to which she was invited. She has faced criticism from some students and some faculty members.
