The university wishes him the best in his future endeavors,” a statement from a university news release read.
Executive Vice President Robert Wagner will be assisting student affairs during the leadership transition.
According to the news release, Cockett will be with staff in student affairs and other stakeholders over the next few weeks to begin the search for a new vice president.
According to the news release, the Division of Student Affairs serves a key role in accomplishing the university’s mission. It provides students with a variety of programs and services.
