Ulin to lead new foundation
Lansing resident Robert Ulin will become the first chief executive officer of the Command and General Staff College Foundation.
Ulin, a Lansing City Council member, accepted an offer from the foundation's board of trustees and has submitted his resignation from the college's faculty effective Friday, Feb. 10.
"I am proud to be a part of this effort and look forward to the challenge of developing the foundation," Ulin said.
The foundation, a tax-exempt, nonprofit private organization that was established in December, will provide financial support for symposia, conferences, lectures and community outreach activities that help to connect the American public to the Army through the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth. Projects range from honoraria for guest speakers, faculty research, staff, faculty and student awards and research support.
Ulin was one of the original incorporators of the foundation, but because of his employment by the government he was barred from serving on the group's newly elected board of trustees.
Lansing resident retired Lt. Gen. Robert Arter, another of the foundation's incorporators, is chairman of the foundation's board.
