Dr. Kenneth Urban, the president of West Shore Community College for two years, has resigned, the college announced late Monday.

Board of Trustees Chairman Bruce Smith described it as a mutual decision and an amicable parting.

“We came to the decision mutually. It was about having a good fit for our college and we believe this is best for our students and community,” he said.

Urban was appointed president of the college in July 2015. He came to WSCC from Nicolet College in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, where he served, for one year, as the interim president. Previously, he served as Vice President of Teaching, Learning and Student Success. 

Trustees have appointed Vice President of Administrative Services Scott Ward as the interim president. Ward previously served as interim president during the 2014-15 academic year. The board has not developed plans to begin a presidential search, Smith said.
