University of New Mexico president to leave early under deal

ALBUQUERQUE - The board that oversees the University of New Mexico and President Bob Frank have reached an agreement for Frank to leave office early, and he will replaced on an interim basis by another top administrator as the school embarks on a search for a new leader, the university announced Tuesday.

Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Chaouki Abdallah will become acting president on Jan. 1 after Frank leaves office Dec. 31, and Dean Craig White will be acting provost, the university’s statement said.

The statement said Frank will be provided a paid leave of absence for “professional development” to run until the May 31 end of his current contract and that he’ll then begin a faculty appointment at a salary of $190,000, reduced from his current $362,136.

“The Board of Regents has determined it is in the best interest of UNM to bring a quick resolution to this matter that is both fair and doesn’t impede our ability to move forward as an institution and conduct a successful presidential search,” board President Robert Doughty said in the statement.
