Subject: Clausen Resigns
Commissioner Clausen this morning sent the note below to members of the Board of Regents.
*Dear Board Members,*
*Please accept this letter of resignation effective July 1. It appears that my presence is a constant distraction to the important work of higher education and to the Board of Regents.*
*There are still many important issues in this session that need attention, not the least of which is final passage of Senator Nevers¹ bill to strengthen Regents, the Grad Act, Performance Based Funding and higher education¹s budget. My hope is that in some small way, this decision will bring a sharper focus to these important issues. *
*Thank you for your very important service to higher education.*
