COLUMBIA - A second MU official announced his resignation Tuesday. The Executive Vice Chancellor of Health Affairs, Dr. Hal Williamson, is leaving his job Feb. 19.

Interim Chancellor Hank Foley announced Williamson's resignation in an email sent to University staff.

Foley said Williamson came out of retirement to fill the position.

"As you may recall, Dr. Williamson returned to the university on an interim basis in mid-December after I re-established the position shortly following my appointment as interim chancellor," Foley said in the email. 

Foley said he has already begun reaching out to his colleagues to find a replacement for Williamson and is making the search a "top-most priority." 

"I want to thank Dr. Williamson again for his commitment to the university and for taking a hiatus from his retirement to return to us," Foley said. 

The College of Education dean announced his resignation Monday.
