The long-time president of the First Nations University of Canada has stepped down.


Dr. Eber Hampton has been the head of the university for the last 14 years.


His contract was due to expire next month.


In a memo sent to the school’s staff, Hampton says he will remain at the university — but only in a teaching capacity.


The university has appointed Charles Pratt to be the acting president.


Pratt has been in charge of the institution’s School of Business and Public Administration.
