National University president quits with no notice

David Andrews has resigned as president of La Jolla-based National University, one of the largest private nonprofit schools in the nation with more than two dozen campuses.

Andrews’ sudden departure — announced Tuesday with “bittersweet sentiment”— came in a 450-word letter to faculty and staff.

No explanation was given in the email from Michael R. Cunningham, chancellor of the National University System.

“Effective immediately, I will be returning to the presidency of National University,” Cunningham wrote. He’ll retain his chancellor role.
