Here’s the blurb the Ann Arbor News ran on Dean Willis’ resignation:
“Edward Willis has resigned from his job as dean of students at the University of Michigan, a post he held since 2002. Willis sent an e-mail to his colleagues on Thursday saying he would step down “within the next few days” to spend more time with his family.
Willis said he was proud of his work with the Division of Student Affairs. In another e-mail sent Friday, U-M’s Vice President for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper thanked Willis for his work. Harper said she will announce interim plans for the position shortly, and an advisory group will be formed as part of the search for his successor.”
