Dr. Nancy Dickey, longtime president of the Texas A&M Health Science Center and Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs for the Texas A&M University System, has resigned, effective immediately.

Dickey said in a Texas A&M press release that the timing of the announcement was impacted by the A&M System's decision to transfer direct control of the Health Science Center from the System to Texas A&M University.

    As president Loftin so aptly states "Change is always difficult. “Human nature is to embrace stability and reject change. But those who embrace change and make it work for them have been the most successful.”

    Do you have some proof of this or are you just trolling as usual? Name a source or actual incident that you can cite that backs up your inflammatory and libelous statement? I'm waiting...ohh that's right, you cannot. You are just on here to stir trouble and create conspiracy theories. I hate conspiracy theorists, I really do. Your hatred for Perry is one thing demonstrated through your accusations but your hatred of people appointed by him is just obscene.

    The "johnbob" posting here is not the same person as the old johnbob. The name was stolen during the switch in web format. The name was apparently appropriated by a person who is enamored with John Sharp and his antics.

    Actually, the "dumb" thing was to transition to the new system and not require the use of real names, verified.

    But, since they're okay with anonymous, unaccountable postings.....

    I'm hijacking here, but since many former posters were unable to secure their old usernames, is there a place the editors can create where we can list "former" and "new' names?

    Seems some opportunistic troublemakers took advantage of the web change and the requirement that we re-register.

    Note - IMHO, it was a dumb idea to make such transition without keeping former posts. My two cents.

    People can be replaced, but remember that they take their grants with them. A major source of funding at this university is grant money. That is becoming very difficult to replace. So is the expertise of our finest faculty.

    Anyone who has worked within the health science center has benefited from her vision and leadership. Sure everyone can be replaced, but as most of us here know, we doubt this leadership change will result in the same accomplishments we experienced under her.

    Anyone who has ever had their sandcastle kicked over totally gets it. Hang in there Dr. Dickey, and thank you.

    If you're not with Sharp he'll eliminate you. Won't get my vote when he tries to run for governor.

    So, who cares if she or any other overpaid academic 'public servant' resigns? There are plenty of others who can fill his/her job- hopefully at a substantively less salary.
    EVERYONE can be replaced.

    These resignations are the direct result of John Sharp and his interference in the operation of this University. Texas A&M will regret these losses for a long time. We will also regret the loss of dozens of top faculty for the same basic reasons.

    All these resignations at A&M. I wonder if she will become another special advisor to the mascot president for a 6 figure salary.

    I wonder who will be next? The ones you don't want to leave, likely will because they are also the ones others want.
