Statement from KBOR President and CEO Blake Flanders on the passing of Reggie Robinson

Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) President and CEO Blake Flanders has issued the following statement on the passing of Reggie Robinson, former KBOR President and CEO and Vice Chancellor at the University of Kansas.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Reggie Robinson. He was an incredibly gifted leader and a dedicated and caring public servant whose work made a tremendous impact on the Board of Regents, the University of Kansas and the entire public higher education system. He was also a caring and thoughtful friend and mentor to everyone whose path he crossed. Those of us who were fortunate enough to call ourselves his colleagues will forever be grateful for the chance to work alongside him.


On behalf of all the Regents, I extend my deepest condolences to Reggie’s family, Jane, Clare and Paige.
