COLUMBIA — Mark D. Oleson, MU’s director of the Office for Financial Success, has resigned in the wake of his arrest in January on suspicion of stealing more than $500 from the university, said Robert Weagley, chairman of personal financial planning at MU.

Although Oleson was put on administrative leave at the time of his arrest, formal charges have yet to be filed against him, according to Missouri casenet.

Weagley said the vacant position will hopefully be filled soon, pointing out that students pay for the services of a director of financial success.

MU’s Office for Financial Success provides group and individual workshops on credit, debt management, budgeting, investing and other areas of finance, according to its Web site.

Oleson, 36, was hired by MU in 2005, according to a biography that previously appeared on the office’s Web site.
