Haskell Indian Nations University close to choosing new president

The Haskell Indian Nations University presidential search is entering its final stages, a university spokesman said Thursday.

Stephen Prue, the spokesman, said a decision is likely forthcoming.

“We’re anticipating a decision very soon,” he said.

Nedra Darling, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, said Keith Moore, director of the Bureau of Indian Education, concluded interviews for candidates on Thursday, and added that he hopes to choose Haskell’s new president soon.

Clyde Peacock, Haskell’s vice president for university services, is serving as interim president.

The presidential search began after Linda Warner resigned Nov. 1 after having been sent to handle other duties off campus since September 2009.
