Montana State University-Northern Chancellor James Limbaugh has announced his resignation one week into the school year.
In an email sent out to the faculty and staff this morning, Limbaugh cited discord in the university and the community as reasons for his decision. He said the resignation is effective Friday.
“For almost three years, I have had the privilege to lead Montana State University-Northern as your chancellor, working toward a shared vision of excellence in post-secondary education. Our students deserve our full attention to this endeavor; our community deserves a university of which it can be proud,” Limbaugh wrote in his email.
