Today, I write to inform you that President Castille has decided to step down as President of University of Houston-Victoria, effective immediately. He will return to the classroom and his tenured position as a professor in the School of Arts and Sciences.
I have asked Wayne Beran, Vice President for Administration, to assume responsibilities of Acting President for the next two or three weeks, at which point I will appoint an Interim President and begin a search for a new President.
We are committed to the success of the University of Houston-Victoria and will provide all the support necessary from the System to ensure a successful accreditation visit and your ongoing education of students. We will also continue to work to make the University of Houston-Victoria a premiere destination university. I appreciate all your efforts and your commitment to the University of Houston-Victoria.
With warm Regards,
Chancellor of the University of Houston System
