Washington, D.C. – Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) issued the following statement after the announcement from the Kansas Board of Regents naming Dr. Douglas Girod the next Chancellor of the University of Kansas:

“The Board of Regents made a wonderful choice in Dr. Girod. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know him well through our work together in building the research capabilities at KU Med through funding at the National Institutes of Health. His character and personality are even more impressive than his lengthy resume. He’s a proven leader and a great man for the job of leading the next generation of Jayhawks. Rock Chalk Chancellor Girod!”
