Don Beggs says he is ready to resign as president of Wichita State University, and will do so once the Kansas Board of Regents has named a successor. The new president is expected to be in place by the summer of 2012. Beggs says his departure has nothing to do with dissatisfaction about the job:
Wichita State is also searching for a new provost. The university will suspend its search for that position until the new president is in place.
