MORRIS - The newly named chancellor for the University of Minnesota-Morris has decided against taking the job.
University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler sent an email to university faculty, staff and students Thursday stating that Rodney Hanley said it was a personal decision made after considerable thought and reflection, and is best for him and his family at this time.
Kaler’s email stated that over the next couple of weeks, he will determine the next steps in re-launching a national search and identifying interim leadership for the Morris campus.
Current UMM Chancellor Jacqueline Johnson is retiring in June after 10 years in Morris.
Hanley was one of three finalists interviewed for the position in Morris. Kaler announced Hanley’s appointment April 22.
Hanley is provost and vice president for academic affairs at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee.
