Changing of the guard at Haskell Indian Nations University….again!

image

This week guarding the ever present boarding school mentality at Haskell Indian Nations University, in Lawrence, Kansas are two that have hardly ever stepped beyond its doors. Venida Chenault as ACTING president and Jim Tucker as ACTING vice president.

It would almost be funny if it weren’t so sad. The leadership at Haskell changes like a revolving door with no one there to push the stop button. Mean while the American Indian students ( 91% of them) are not graduating.

All we have to say about this is maybe Larry Echohawk or Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn should send some clowns in to take over …… Oh, wait, don’t bother, they’re already there.

    What a joke!! However, how sad it is that this all at the expense of the students and the reputation of Haskell. Chenault is not respected by many at Haskell and in the Lawrence community. Jim Tucker is a nice guy, but has no experience in the area of academic leadership.

    Have to admit we got a good laugh over this..someone has a sense of humor.
    What’s not funny though is it seems like every week or few days Haskell has new actings. They need Dr. Warner back. What are they doing? Haskell will never move forward like this. It’s like KU changing presidents every week. Does anyone think that will happen? Never. We agree with this ” Chenault is not respected by many at Haskell and in the Lawrence community. Jim Tucker is a nice guy, but has no experience in the area of academic leadership”. We want to know who put those two in charge? We really want to know. Does anyone know how that works at Haskell? Chenault as a leader…that is a joke!
