Valdosta State University President Patrick Schloss has announced that he will leave the south Georgia school for another position with the state university system.

The Valdosta Daily Times reports that Schloss is leaving Valdosta State in late June after nearly three years as its president.

Schloss has been named the special assistant to the executive vice chancellor for retention, progression, and graduation for the University System of Georgia.

Schloss was named president of Valdosta State in August 2008. Before that, he served as president of Northern State University in Aberdeen, S.D., for four years.
