Texas A&M University-Kingsville President Mark Hussey announced his resignation earlier this month to become the acting vice chancellor and dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M University.
James Hallmark, vice chancellor for Academic Affairs, will be the acting president of the Kingsville university until a replacement can be found. A search has since begun.
Hussey became the 20th president of Texas A&M-Kingsville in January 2019. He had previously served as vice chancellor and dean for Agriculture and Life Sciences and interim president at Texas A&M University.
“I will always be grateful for my time at Texas A&M University-Kingsville and to the faculty, staff, students and alumni for their support,” Hussey said in a news release. “In leaving, I am confident that the university is well-positioned to continue its tradition of excellence and service for South Texas and beyond.”
Hussey was appointed to fill the interim role at Texas A&M University after the current vice chancellor and dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Patrick Stover, announced in early December he would not seek reappointment at the end of the current year.
