“After considerable thought, introspection and conversations with my family, I have decided to resign from my position as president in order to initiate my retirement on October 11, 2012,” James H. Ammons wrote in a letter to the chairman of the school’s board of trustees, Solomon Badger III.

James H. Ammons said he is leaving the post he has held for five years, effective this fall, but would remain as a tenured professor on the faculty. He made no direct reference to hazing in his letter.
Last month, the school’s trustees supported by 8-4 a no-confidence vote over Ammons’ performance.
“I hear you loudly and clearly,” Ammons told the board at the time. “I understand there are some measures that I have to take as president of this university to fix things, and I am going to fix them.”
