Haskell University faculty members complain of nepotism by the school's top official
TOPEKA – Members of the Haskell University community are leveling accusations of nepotism at the school’s top official, but the federal agency that oversees Haskell says it is complying with federal law and guidance.
Haskell Indian Nations University president Venida Chenault’s son holds two high-level administrative roles, one of which he received after she became president.
“It needs to stop,” says Theresa Milk, a member of the American Indian Studies faculty who has filed a federal complaint over the matter. “I can’t just sit back. That’s my school. What’s happening there isn’t right.”
