Chief of university's Ketchikan campus announces departure

Associated PressMay 3, 2012 

KETCHIKAN -- The man hired a year ago to head the Ketchikan campus of the University of Alaska Southeast is leaving.

Anthony Mansueto tells the Ketchikan Daily News he has accepted a job as director of general education at the University of the District of Columbia. Mansueto's hiring in Ketchikan was announced in March 2011. He moved north from Texas and began the job in July.

Mansueto says his new job will allow him to teach half time and that he missed being in the classroom. He says Ketchikan's weather didn't play a part in his search for a new job but that he and his wife discovered that, "ultimately, we're more urban people."

UAS Provost Richard Caulfield will head up the search for a new director.
