New President for First Nations University

Business expert to rebuild school after years of governance problems

Doyle Anderson, who holds an MBA from the University of Saskatchewan, will be the new president of First Nations University in Regina. The Red Pheasant First Nation member will take over from an interim president who was installed after Charles Pratt was fired for several years of financial irregularities, including unjustifiable travel and vacation expenses. Both Ottawa and Saskatchewan cancelled funding in the spring of 2010, but federal grants were restored in June after the board agreed to a restructuring process. Anderson is currently the director of both the Native American Business Administration Program and the Indigenous Nations Institute at Idaho State University.
