The Board of Trustees of North Central College announces it has accepted the resignation of President Troy D. Hammond after nearly ten years of serving in the role.

Hammond informed the Board that he believed it was time for a new leader to guide the College for the next phase of its storied 160-year history after nearly a decade in the role.

“Serving in this role has been the professional honor of a lifetime. I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for providing me this opportunity and for the diligent work of our leadership, faculty, and staff to make a difference in the lives of thousands of students during my time here,” said President Hammond. “It’s hard to believe a decade has gone by because it seems like yesterday, I was being introduced to the North Central College community, but I believe the time is right for me to let someone else guide this amazing institution.”
