Editorial: Challenges face new Haskell University president

"The naming of a new, permanent president is great news for Haskell Indian Nations University.

After almost two years without a full-time president on campus, the school is in serious need of consistent and visionary leadership. Hopefully, Chris Redman, who will take over as Haskell’s president on July 3, will provide that kind of leadership.

Redman comes to the job with some experience that should be helpful. He has worked for Haskell since 2008, including two stints as the school’s interim president. Before that he worked in various positions for his tribe, the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma and then for the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Indian Education Programs in Washington, D.C."
