Signs point to the resignation of a key Texas A&M official, as it appears Vice President for Student Affairs Dean Bresciani has been asked to step down.
An internal student affairs department e-mail obtained by News 3 from Associate Vice President for Student Affairs David Parrott states Bresciani was asked to submit his resignation effective Friday. Parrott's e-mail says he has been appointed the interim vice president.
Texas A&M's website confirms Parrott as acting vice president.
"I think we have an obligation to continue to set the standard for excellence in the Student Affairs profession and at Texas A&M University," Parrott writes. "Our commitment should remain: excellence in delivery of service to students and in providing the high impact educational experiences that are vital to the success of our students and that set us apart from most universities. In other words, stay the course."
The Aggie website biography for Bresciani states he came to the university in the summer of 2004. He was the third person to hold the student affairs' vice presidency, and held positions on numerous campuses prior to A&M, including at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before he arrived in Aggieland.
A person in Parrott's office referred questions to a university spokesperson. A&M declined to comment on personnel matters when asked Monday about rumors of Bresciani's status.
