Morrison Steps Down as SACUBO President(Posted: May 1, 2014)
After serving in the role for a year, Darrell Morrison, vice chancellor for finance and administration at the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, stepped down recently as president of the Southern Association of College and University Business Officers.
As a past president, Morrison will continue to serve as an officer until May 2015. He also serves on the board of the National Association of College and University Business Officers, with his term also ending next May.
Morrison sees serving in these organizations as opportunities to advance UAFS and university business professionals across the region.
"I see it as a way to continue and lead the professional development of college and university business officers," he said. "On a personal level, it has given me a great network to bounce ideas and thoughts off other people, and has helped me develop into a stronger business officer."
Dr. Paul Beran, UAFS chancellor, lauded Morrison and the work he accomplished in his tenure.
"One of the reasons Mr. Morrison is so effective as a vice chancellor at UAFS is because of his association with these types of professional associations," Beran said. "His ascension in these organizations shows that he's not just thought highly of on our campus, but across the region as well."
Morrison will continue serving on various committees with SACUBO in addition to assisting with initiatives started by the next president.
"It has been an outstanding experience to serve as president of SACUBO," Morrison said. "I have made lifelong friends while growing professionally and personally."
