Wittenberg hired Dr. Laurie Joyner to be its first female president in July of 2012. Now, after nearly four years on the job, Joyner is leaving the university.
Wendy Kobler, interim vice-president of advancement, confirmed Joyner's resignation Wednesday evening.
"Dr. Joyner has resigned from her post as president and will leave Wittenberg University on Friday, Nov. 6. She was elected to serve Wittenberg University by the board of directors in 2012, so she was in her fourth year," Kobler said.
