FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville’s chief fundraiser has resigned his post, one month after his department was reorganized.

Chris Wyrick resigned as UA’s vice chancellor of advancement. He tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2arefgN ) that he’s leaving the position “with enthusiasm for the future” and he declined further comment.

Chancellor Joe Steinmetz told the newspaper that he believed the Division of University Advancement needed new leadership and that Wyrick’s resignation was mutually agreed upon.

Last month, Steinmetz removed 18 fundraisers from Wyrick’s division and redistributed part of his budget. Wyrick’s resignation comes about a month before the university revs up its $1 billion Campaign Arkansas fundraiser.

Associate Vice Chancellor Mark Power will take over Wyrick’s position while the university searches for a replacement.
