Reggie Robinson, a vice chancellor for public affairs, will be leaving the University of Kansas to take a position as the new president and CEO of the Kansas Health Foundation, according to a news release from Chancellor Douglas Girod. 

Robinson’s final day at the University will be in November, Girod said. He will begin his new position on Dec. 1.
