GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) – Dr. Michael Dwaine Greene, president of Georgetown College, announced on that he will be stepping away from his presidency at the close of the 2018-19 academic year.

Greene has declined the wish of the College’s Board of Trustees to extend his contract, citing a desire to relocate closer to his family.

As Greene wrote in his letter to the College’s staff, “With every good wish for Georgetown College in the years ahead, personal and family considerations will soon draw me away.” He continued, “Be assured that I am looking forward to leading the College through this academic year.” Greene plans to stay as president through commencement in May of 2019 and has offered to assist the College in coming months during the search for his successor.

Greene arrived at Georgetown in October of 2013.

As Georgetown College begins its search for its 25th president and prepares for its bicentennial in eleven years, it will continue to build on that solid foundation as it pursues its mission “to prepare students to engage in their life’s pursuits with thoughtfulness and skill by providing an exceptional educational experience in a vibrant Christian community.”
