University of Akron President Scott Scarborough resigns -l Karen Farkas,

Scarborough released a three paragraph statement thanking trustees for the opportunity to serve and looking forward to the next chapter in his life. "It is our belief that new leadership is needed for the university to move forward and achieve sustained success in the future," he said. Rex Ramsier, interim senior vice president and provost, will fulfill the duties of the president until an interim president is named, Pavloff said. The university will begin a search for a new president. Pavloff had defended Scarborough numerous times during the president's tenure. "We are grateful for the work he has given us and the challenges he has accepted," Pavloff said. But the challenges Scarborough was asked to address, enrollment declines and financial problems, still exist, he said.
