Texas Woman's University Chancellor and President Ann Stuart has announced she is retiring from the university. She will lead the university until a successor is named, according to a news release.
The news was announced Friday during a TWU Board of Regents meeting at the university's Houston campus. Students, faculty, staff and alumni were alerted via an email sent by Stuart.
"When I came to TWU, I understood that I was to be a steward of TWU's past with the responsibility for positioning the university for a strong future," she said in the news release. "Together with the faculty, staff, administration and students, we have enhanced the learning environment and the overall reputation of this historic institution."
Stuart became chancellor and president in 1999.
