BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU Eunice Chancellor William Nunez III is retiring and will step down at the end of the fiscal year.

Nunez made the announcement Monday about his career in higher education spanning 45 years. He’s been chancellor at the schools since 1996 and is also a biology professor there.

“It has been a sincere honor and privilege to serve LSU Eunice - its students, faculty and staff - and to work for LSU, my alma mater, over the past 19 years,” Nunez said in a statement released by LSU. “And, of all that has been achieved at LSUE during this time, the most important achievement has been the numbers of students who have personally grown, developed and succeeded as the end-result of their LSUE education and experience.”

LSU said it will conduct a national search for his replacement.

“We are grateful for the leadership that Chancellor Nunez has provided,” said LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander. “We will begin looking for the next chancellor and will find the right person for the campus, students, faculty and staff, and the city of Eunice.”

The school is located just southwest of Eunice along Louisiana Highway 755 in Acadia Parish.
