University of Missouri-Kansas City professor Michael Song has resigned. He was at the center of the controversy surrounding UMKC’s Henry W. Bloch School of Management.
Song said his presence had become a distraction.
“For the best interests of the students and programs, I have reluctantly decided to resign from UMKC so that everyone can focus on doing the important thing — training the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators,” Songsaid in a press release issued by UMKC.
UMKC Chancellor Leo Morton accepted Song’s resignation and thanked him for his service.
