TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) — A northern Ohio university is searching for a new president for the second time in six months.

Curtis Charles says he resigned as the head of Tiffin University because of a difference in philosophy. Tiffin is located about 40 miles southeast of Toledo.

Under Charles' leadership, the university adopted a five-year plan that focused on student success and established the Veteran and Military Resource Center.

Board of Trustees President Claire Johansen says the university will appoint an interim president soon and begin looking for Charles' successor immediately.

Charles was named president in March following the retirement of Paul Marion, who served as president for 13 years. Charles began working in July.
