University of Mobile president resigns over personal reasons

February 27, 2019

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The University of Mobile in Alabama says its president has resigned for personal reasons.

Al.com reports the school’s board of trustees announced the resignation of Tim Smith on Tuesday. A statement by the board does not detail the personal reasons provided by Smith.

Smith was the fourth president of the Baptist-affiliated school and formally took over the role in early 2016. The board’s statement says it and the school’s executive committee are now “finalizing plans for the immediate future of the university.” It’s unclear who will take over Smith’s responsibilities.

The school was founded in 1961 and says it has more than 1,700 enrolled students.
