Board of Visitors Rector Nanalou Sauder announced today that Executive Vice President Rick Hurley has decided to postpone his retirement, according to a university press release.
The announcement comes four days after President Judy Hample declared her plan to resign from the university effective June 30, 2010.
Hurley served as Acting President in 2007 and 2008 after former President William Frawley was terminated.
In October 2009, Hurley announced his plan to retire effective May 31, 2010.
Hurley began his career at UMW in 2000, after leaving the position of vice president of administration and finance at Longwood University.
In the release, Sauder said, “The Board has expressed thanks to Mr. Hurley for his willingness to change his plans and continue to serve the needs of Mary Washington.”
