RINDGE - Andrew Card, former President George W. Bush's chief of staff, is stepping down as Franklin Pierce University's president as of August.

Card said he had a two-year agreement with the university's board and wanted to leave so a successor could be in place before the start of the next academic year.

“Leading this institution has been both a good challenge and a great joy. I leave knowing we have met those challenges, and I know the school is on a firm foundation for growth,” Card said.

Card came to Franklin Pierce after having served as chief of staff to President George W. Bush and acting dean of the George H.W. Bush School of Public Service and Government at Texas A&M University. He was secretary of transportation in President George H. W. Bush’s administration. He had served on the Franklin Pierce board of trustees from 1996 to 2000.
