[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]University President Troy Paino announced plans to leave Truman State to accept a position as the 10th president of the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia, effective July 1.
Paino announced his resignation following the conclusion of the 2015 – 16 academic year in an email to faculty, staff and students Monday. The University of Mary Washington hired Paino following a global search by the university’s Presidential Search Advisory Committee. Paino, who signed a four-year extension of his contract with Truman during October, said he accepted the position in Virginia because he wanted to work for a public liberal arts university situated close to family.
Paino said he has expressed to the Board a willingness to be as involved in the process of hiring a new president for Truman as the Board would like him to be. Paino said he intends to be at Truman until at least June, when he anticipates taking some time off to prepare to begin work at Mary Washington July 1. He said he is at the disposal of the Board and wants to help in any way he can to set the stage for the search for his replacement.
