The president of Nebraska Christian College is stepping down after 15 years.
President Richard Milliken said in an email to the college community Thursday that his resignation will be effective in May. He is leaving to pursue another opportunity that has not yet been announced, according to college spokesman Raj Lulla.
Milliken is the sixth president in the college’s history, and his father, Harold Milliken, was its third president.
He presided over the relocation of the entire campus from Norfolk to Papillion in 2006 and launched the Institute for Church Leadership last year.
“I have loved being part of the life and growth of the mission over the past 15 years,” Milliken said in the email. “I was thrilled to lead the charge on the move to Omaha, the construction of this college, and the renewed clarification of our mission of creating church leaders. We are moving in the right direction.”
