Chancellor of The University of Texas System William H. McRaven announced that he will step down in 2018. McRaven became chancellor in 2015, following a 37-year career as a decorated military leader, including his previous role as a Navy four-star admiral and ninth commander of the United States Special Operations Command.

McRaven has been public about chronic health issues over the past few years, and a recent illness played a key role in his decision. 

“This decision to transition to private life was one of the hardest I have ever made, but recent health concerns prompted Georgeann and me to reflect on the years ahead and think seriously about things we still want to do as a family. While I’m on the road to recovery and am grateful to my UT physicians and the good wishes and prayers of our many friends and colleagues, I believe it is time to segue to several other passions in my life that I’d like to experience, and much of that will also involve teaching and writing,” McRaven said.
