The Texas A&M University System announced June 13 that George Wright is stepping down from his role as president of Prairie View A&M University.
Once an interim president is named, Wright will relinquish the title and return to teaching history full-time.
Wright had continued his teaching and research while serving as president, but he wants to focus more on those pursuits. In a statement, he noted that his research requires more travel and attention than he can devote in his role as president.
