Scripps College president Suzanne Keen is out after less than a year on the job.
Keen announced Tuesday that she was resigning from the presidency, which she assumed in July.
“In conversation with Board leadership, I have made the decision to step down as president of Scripps College. I am very sorry for the disappointment that this news causes,” Keen said in a statement, which did not specify her reason for leaving the post at the women’s college in California. The statement noted that she would continue on as an English professor.
Keen’s LinkedIn profile was updated Tuesday to note her departure and return to teaching. She will join the faculty ranks at Scripps following a sabbatical, the statement concluded.
Scripps College officials did not provide additional details on her resignation Tuesday.
