Hardin resigns -- Harding corrects

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 9:10 AM

UCA board of trustees member Rush Harding III phones to say that -- contrary to what he told us yesterday -- ex-UCA president Lu Hardin would indeed remain an employee of the university for the duration of the one year "sabbatical" mentioned in the board's statement on the terms of his severance package. Hardin resigned yesterday.

Harding said that he spoke to UCA interim president Tom Courtway after he spoke to the Times Blog yesterday afternoon, and said that Courtway had clarified the issue for him. Harding said that even though Hardin will relinquish all supervisory duties when his resignation formally goes into effect on Sept. 16, the former president will remain on the books as a UCA employee until June 30, 2009, as stipulated in his agreement with the university.

"Technically, even though he has no duties," Harding said, "he'll still be an employee of the university and it would be a sabbatical year."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
