CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
University of Cincinnati President Greg Williams is leaving the position he has held for almost three years.
Reports came in on Tuesday that Williams leaving, but an exact reason is still unknown.
Williams was sworn in as UC's 27th president in November 2009 after Nancy Zimpher took a position with The State University of New York (SUNY).
Previously, Williams was serving as the president of the City College of New York, where he had been for eight years. In a press statement, the college claims he helped increase enrollment by 50 percent.
"I don't know, its going to be kind of a mess and its bad timing at the beginning of the school year," said UC parent Michelle Bacon. "Its going to be chaotic again."
It took UC eight months to name a replacement when Zimpher left in March 2009.
Williams is an attorney with a doctorate in political science who has written a book titled The True Story of a White Boy Who Discovered He Was Black. He is a native of Muncie, Ind. and has five degrees, including a J.D. and a Ph.D. from The George Washington University, and he holds three honorary degrees.
"The University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees announced today that President Gregory H. Williams has resigned due to personal reasons. Provost Santa J. Ono, PhD., has been appointed interim president. The Board is most appreciative of Dr. Williams' service and contributions to the university," read a statement from the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees.
"I wish him the best and I hope he takes care of all his personal problems he needs to take care of," said UC student Ryan Hesse.
