The president of Mount Marty College has resigned fewer than three years after being hired to lead the Catholic liberal arts institution in Yankton.
Joseph Benoit says he has enjoyed heading the school but misses teaching and doing research. He says he wants to resume his biomedical science career and be directly engaged in educating and training future scientists. He did not elaborate.
Benoit was hired in July 2011. He came from the University of North Dakota, where he had served as dean of the graduate school and professor in the department of pharmacology, physiology and therapeutics for a decade.
Mount Marty College says its Board of Trustees will soon name an interim president and come up with a plan for hiring a successor to Benoit.
