President Lassner’s evaluation
“The board unanimously agreed that the president has worked hard to execute this job with integrity and with commitment. He has demonstrated that his actions, whether popular or unpopular, have been guided by what he believes are the long term best interests of the university. He has successfully led the institution through challenging times, and the university is in a better place now than where it was three years ago.
“The Board of Regents would like to take this opportunity to recognize the hard work, dedication and leadership that the president has exhibited during his tenure. Much work remains to be done, and we look forward to his continued leadership in guiding this vital institution into the future.”
