NAPERVILLE, IL — President Troy Hammond will resign from his role at North Central College, according to a recent update from the school in Naperville. College officials are seeking an interim president to fill Hammond’s role ahead of the 2022-23 school year.
“North Central College is a stronger institution because of President Hammond’s leadership and service over the past ten years,” James A. McDermet, Chairman of the North Central College Board of Trustees, said in a statement.
McDermet added, “Nearly every aspect of North Central has been transformed to help us prepare for the future. We completed the most successful capital campaign in our history to help modernize and expand our campus to support the addition of new academic programs and benefit generations of students to come.”
After his resignation, Hammond plans to serve as advisor to North Central College’s Board of Trustees.
“Serving in this role has been the professional honor of a lifetime. I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for providing me this opportunity and for the diligent work of our leadership, faculty, and staff to make a difference in the lives of thousands of students during my time here,” Hammond said in a news release.
He added, “It’s hard to believe a decade has gone by because it seems like yesterday I was being introduced to the North Central College community, but I believe the time is right for me to let someone else guide this amazing institution.”
