Belle Wei, Chico State provost and vice president of academic affairs, has resigned.

Wei cited health issues and a need to spend more time with her family as reasons she decided to leave her position, wrote Chico President Paul Zingg in an email.

Wei started working as the provost in August 2012. Zingg praised Wei for her ability to help make positive changes over the past two years such as increasing the graduation rate and enrolling more underrepresented students.

“We are a better, more student-focused university thanks to Belle’s efforts, and I know you will join me in thanking her for her unflagging hard work, caring, joyful spirit, and commitment to serving our campus,” he said.

As of Friday, Wei has no replacement. Zingg wrote that he will now meet with Chico State management in order to select a new provost.
