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."
