BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The first president of Lindenwood University’s campus in southwestern Illinois says he’ll be stepping down at the end of this year.

The Belleville News-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1usop3V ) reports that Belleville campus president Jerry Bladdick will leave the post on Dec. 31. He’s held the job since May 2013.

A day after notifying the university’s staff of his decision to resign, Bladdick told the newspaper that he’s unsure what he’ll do after this presidency is done.

Bladdick was hired in mid-2009 as a vice president in the Missouri-based Lindenwood University system and as the chief administrative officer of the 2,300-student Belleville campus.

The Belleville campus under Bladdick’s watch has tripled to 35 the number of its degree offerings and broadened its sports programs from two to 32.
