WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State University President John Bardo has asked Provost Richard Muma to be acting president while Bardo recovers from lung surgeries.

Bardo, who is 70, was hospitalized in November with a chronic lung condition. He was expected to return to campus this month.

The university said in a news release Wednesday that Bardo asked that Muma be acting president while Bardo focuses on recovering.

It is not clear when Bardo is expected to return to the university.
