UMR to change student affairs division


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- University of Minnesota-Rochester Chancellor Stephen Lehmkuhle will relieve three employees in the student affairs division of their supervisory responsibilities.

The decision was made Wednesday. Department supervisors received the news in an email from Lehmkuhle.

The email, which was obtained by KTTC, lists the intent for the university to have the "right leadership in place as UMR moves from a start-up into a growth mode."

Chancellor Lehmkuhle goes on to say: "As I reflect about these critical factors for UMR's future, I have come to the conclusion that it is necessary to assemble a new leadership team for student affairs.  Hence, today I have informed Kendra Weber, Nathan Tesch, and Jade Grabau about my decision to change leadership and notified them that effective immediately they have no supervisory responsibilities.  Kendra, Nathan, and Jade will continue to serve the campus until September on projects as assigned by me." 

UMR officials said that this is only a personnel decision and no further comment will be given.

A source close to the situation says that staff members are very nervous about the future of the employees and even the university.
