Former U of I President To Work In Springfield

Former University of Illinois President Michael Hogan will work at the school's Springfield campus after finishing a year on sabbatical.

University spokesman Tom Hardy says Hogan was allowed to choose which of the school's three campuses to work on after he announced his resignation in March. Springfield is much smaller than the campuses in Urbana-Champaign and Chicago.

Hardy said Hogan's role when he begins work in Springfield in the 2013-14 school year hasn't been decided. Hogan will be paid $285,000 a year.

Hogan is a historian by training.

He resigned under pressure after many faculty members complained about his management style and efforts they believed cut campus autonomy.
