UC's President Greg Williams resigns

Aug 21, 2012

University of Cincinnati president Gregory Williams is resigning. The announcement comes less than a week before classes begin.

In a statement, the university says Williams is resigning because of personal reasons.

UC's Board of Trustees met for several hours Tuesday. Provost Santa Ono will fill the position in the interim.

Williams joined the university in 2009 having served previously at The City College of New York. He also sits on the board of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. It's unclear whether he'll resign that position as well.
