COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M University Provost, Karan Watson, will step down from her position at the end of the academic year.

Watson was appointed the position in March 2011 but started her faculty journey at A&M in 1983. During her time, she's had many 'firsts' to her name, including first tenure-track woman in Electrical Engineering, first woman to hold an Associate Dean position in Engineering, and a first female Provost.
Young expressed deep gratitude for the extraordinary work by Watson and said "we will commence a search process to fill this critical position."
Young also said Watson has no plans to leave the university and will continue to work to move the university forward.
