HIGHLAND HEIGHTS -- Northern Kentucky University's upper management got a shake-up Thursday when President James Votruba announced a reorganization. The budget office and the office of administrative affairs will be combined under a new vice president for administration and finance.

"What we're trying to accomplish is a way to save money and reallocate those funds to things that are directly beneficial to students," Dr. Votruba said.

The change fits in with Dr. Votruba's plans to control costs and improve efficiency.

A national search will be conducted to fill the new vice president's position.

"This is a major move for us," Dr. Votruba said. "I did a lot of consultation with my colleagues across the country to see how they organize these departments and this makes a lot of sense for us."

Gerald Hunter, assistant vice president for administration, will act as budget director.

Michael Baker, assistant vice president for business affairs, will fill the new vice president's position until a permanent person is hired.

Carla Chance, vice president for administration, and Elzie Baker, budget director, will serve as special consultants to Dr. Votruba.
