Long-time University of the Incarnate Word President Lou Agnese has taken a ninety-day medical leave of absence–effective immediately.
In a statement, the school said Agnese has exhibited uncharacteristic behavior over the last two weeks, along with making uncharacteristic comments. Interactions with students, staff and faculty provoked concern for his well-being.
The statement goes on to apologize to anyone who may have taken offense.
Dr. Denise Doyle will serve as interim President in Agnese’s absence.
