Herbert New President of Indiana University; His Leadership, Integrity Praised


Kormanik, Beth, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Beth Kormanik, Times-Union staff writer

Saying goodbye to Jacksonville, at least for now, former State University System Chancellor Adam Herbert yesterday accepted the position as the 17th president of Indiana University, becoming the school's first African-American leader.

Indiana trustees unanimously approved the hiring of Herbert, a former University of North Florida president. Trustees praised Herbert's leadership and integrity and said his experience set him apart from four other finalists.

"Now I see what a Hoosier welcome is all about," Herbert joked as he took the podium at the Musical Arts Center on the university's flagship campus in Bloomington, Ind. He wore a crimson tie, the school's signature color, and promised to buy two more.

But Herbert, 59, won't be gone from Jacksonville for long. In a telephone interview with the Times-Union en route to Indianapolis, Herbert said he will keep his home near UNF and return for holidays and some Jaguars football games. His retirement plans still lie in Jacksonville, he said.

In his speech, Herbert often drew on his experiences in Florida. He promised to be an active community leader, one of his top priorities in Jacksonville. He also cited UNF's efforts to recruit minority students from inner-city high schools and help them afford college, and promised to reach out to minorities in Indiana.

"I accept this assignment with a great deal of enthusiasm for the great Indiana University mission," Herbert said. "The next decade will offer unparalleled opportunities for the university to play an expanding role in shaping Indiana, the nation and perhaps the world."

Under his five-year contract, Herbert will receive a base annual salary of $335,000, which includes $280,000 from the university and $55,000 from its foundation; annual deferred pay of $70,000; two homes; two cars; and other benefits. He begins work Aug. 1.

Herbert was paid $250,196 a year at UNF, and the previous Indiana president, Myles Brand, made $307,000 in base pay.

Herbert's wife, Karen, will be paid $60,000 a year for representing the university at various functions and for overseeing the presidential residences. …
