LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A former top executive at the Kansas Board of Regents and longtime University of Kansas administrator and professor has died.

Reggie Robinson, who was the current president of the Kansas Health Foundation, died Saturday at age 63, the foundation’s board chairman Matt Allen said.

Allen said Robinson was “an outstanding leader” who made “a positive impact on so many lives.”

“Reggie had a wide cast of friends who spoke of him with great admiration and appreciation,” Allen said.

Robinson served as president and CEO of the governing body of Kansas’ public colleges and universities from 2002 to 2010. After that, he led Washburn University’s Center for Law and Government for several years before returning to KU where he led the School of Public Affairs and Administration before becoming the university’s vice chancellor for public affairs.

He also taught in KU’s Law School for several years in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
