February 28, 2020 GMT

HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — The president of Hastings College in Hastings announced Friday that he intends to leave the post he’s held since June 2017.

Dr. Travis Feezell is taking another higher education job and his exit is effective Monday, the college said in a news release. The college didn’t say where Feezell will be going. He didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

He oversaw the renovation of the Daugherty Student Engagement Center into a campus hub for recruitment and student development and was the architect of Hastings 2.0, a transformation effort that included a revised curriculum and new academic calendar.

The initiatives will continue, said Roger Doerr, who leads the college board of trustees.

The board has appointed a transition committee to oversee the private college’s operations until a new president is named.
