Michael McKinney to step down as Texas A&M chancellor in July

The Houston Chronicle
May 10, 2011
Michael D. McKinney’s often stormy tenure as chancellor of the Texas A&M University system is coming to an end. He announced today that he will step down this summer.

McKinney, a physician and former state legislator, as well as a former chief of staff to Gov. Rick Perry, said he will continue to work through the legislative session.

Higher education faces big cuts for the 2012 and 2013 budget years, and McKinney said in a memo to the system that he “will continue to assist our legislators in their pursuit of maintaining access to quality higher education and a balanced budget.”

Neither McKinney’s statement, nor that of the chairman of the board of regents, Richard Box of Austin, mentioned the controversies that marked the chancellor’s nearly five years in office.

There were several, most notably a clash with Elsa Murano, who was forced out as president of the flagship campus in June 2009 after receiving a critical evaluation from McKinney.
