THIBODAUX- A Louisiana university president is leaving at the end of the year.
The University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors says Bruce Murphy told the board he's resigning from Nicholls State for other work in higher education.
The board announced Murphy's resignation on its website Thursday.
