Stephen Jones submitted his resignation as president of Bob Jones University citing health issues.

Stephen Jones submitted his resignation as president of Bob Jones University and the university board of trustees accepted it effective at the end of Commencement May 9.

“The persistence of my health issues over the last three years is preventing me from providing the leadership the University needs at this time and prompted my personal decision to resign," Jones said.

“The Board fully understands the effects of Dr. Jones’ continuing health issues as they relate to the demands of the position,” said Larry Jackson, chairman of the trustees’ board. “And we appreciate his leadership in giving priority to the mission of the University. The Board is grateful for his significant contributions to the ministry of BJU, his dedication to its mission and his love for the faculty, staff and students during his tenure as president.”

Jackson said a search committee would be established a search committee.
