NEW YORK (AP) - The president of John Jay College of Criminal Justice is leaving the school after 13 years.

The college announced Tuesday that Jeremy Travis will step down effective Aug. 1, 2017.

Travis helped transform the college into a strong research institution. He’s credited with increasing freshman enrollment and boosting fundraising efforts.

Travis will teach criminal justice at City University of New York’s graduate school. He’s also taking a fellowship at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

The Yale graduate has worked for the New York Police Department as a special counsel and as deputy commissioner for legal matters. He also advised Mayor Ed Koch in the late 1980s.

Travis said the decision to leave was difficult, but it was the right time for him to begin his next professional chapter.
