Robert L. Green, former president of the University of the District of Columbia, who is under indictment here, has been relieved at his request of an administrative post at a college in Cleveland and will be reassigned, officials of the college said.

Green will be relieved Dec. 1 as planning coordinator of the Joint Center for Applied Research in Urban Education at Cuyahoga Community College, according to Joseph S. Nolan, the college's vice president for human resources. The shift was made Thursday by the college's trustees, Nolan said.

Nolan said he will recommend a new title and new job for Green to the trustees at their meeting next month.

Green has been indicted here on charges of fraud, theft and five counts of lying to a federal grand jury investigating expenditures from discretionary funds controlled by the D.C. mayor's office.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and has denied any wrongdoing.

His contract with Cuyahoga extends through June 30, 1988, and "he remains as a full-time employe," Nolan said.

According to Nolan, Green, who "has been an outstanding employee here," said in a letter to Cuyahoga's president that "because of demands on his time, he would not be able to continue" in the "visible and direct leadership position" of planning coordinator of the joint center.
