California Institute of Technology President Jean-Lou Chameau plans to step down from the top job at the prestigious institute to lead a new Saudi Arabian university.
In his resignation letter to the community, Chameau said there's historical significance to his new job as president of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
With significant resources and a lofty mission, Chameau's new role will have him leading a school poised to "have a dramatic impact on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and the world," he said in a statement Tuesday.
