Kansas University administrator gets new post at University of North Dakota

November 12, 2010


A Kansas University associate vice provost for student success will leave KU to take a new position at the University of North Dakota.

Lori Reesor has been named UND’s next vice president for student affairs. She will begin in the new position on Feb. 28.

Reesor has worked in KU’s student success office since 2006. She oversees the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Student Involvement and Leadership Center, University Advising Center, and the University Career Center.

She will replace Robert Boyd at North Dakota. Boyd will focus full time on transitioning the university away from its Fighting Sioux logo and nickname.

Congrats. Seems like KU Student Success is losing a lot of quality administrators and staff lately. Good luck Lori to you and your family.

"Boyd will focus full time on transitioning the university away from its Fighting Sioux logo and nickname."

Jeez, how long could that take? And why does it take a high-level administrator to do it?

You don't even know the half of it. It's been a process that has taken 30 years to even get to this point. It is an amazingly complex issue with many stakeholders -- students, faculty, athletes, powerful alumni, Legislators, the Governor, State Board of Higher Education and the State AG. Not to mention the NCAA is involved in the controvery. It's like if one day the "Jayhawk" nickname and "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" were deemed offensive and the school was forced to change get rid of them: It would take more than a day to get it done and more than a University peon to lead the charge.
