The president of Dakota State University has resigned after serving as head of the Madison-based school for more two and half years.
The South Dakota Board of Regents accepted President David Borofsky's resignation Wednesday afternoon at its planning meeting.
Borofsky's resignation is effective immediately. Marysz Rames will serve as the interim president at DSU while the regents search for a new leader. Rames is the vice president for student affairs at South Dakota State University.
Borofsky's resignation was unexpected. The regents modified their agenda Wednesday to accept his resignation and appoint Rames to replace him.
It isn't immediately clear why Borofsky suddenly stepped down.
