VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- Regent University in Virginia Beach says its president is stepping down.
Carlos Campo's departure was announced late Friday by Daniel Sellers, chairman of the school's board of trustees. He extended the board's gratitude for Campo's contributions to Regent.
There was no immediate word from Regent officials on Campo's future plans.
Campo came to Regent in 2008 as chief academic officer. He was starting his fourth year as president.
In a statement released by the university, Campo said he is "blessed and honored" to have served as Regent president.
Regent was founded in 1978 by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson. Campo succeeded Robertson as president.
Regent has more than 5,800 students studying on its campus in Virginia Beach and online around the world.
