Former University of Iowa Provost Michael Hogan has resigned from his current position as president of the University of Illinois-Champaign/Urbana.

According to a University of Illinois press release, officials announced Thursday that the school's Board of Trustees has received Hogan's resignation. The board will likely ratify the change at a May 31 meeting in Chicago.

University of Illinois faculty had written two letters over the last two months expressing a lack of trust between Hogan and the faculty, along with other complaints.

Hogan, who was a UI history professor before becoming provost, was also a finalist with Sally Mason in the most recent UI presidential selection.
