FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - The University of Mary Washington's president is resigning after two years on the job.

Judy Hample said Friday that she is leaving June 30 to pursue other interests in higher education. She was not specific.

Hample came to Mary Washington in 2008 from Pennsylvania, where she was chancellor of the State System of Higher Education, which includes Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She succeeded William Frawley, who was fired after he was charged with driving under the influence twice in two days. He was later convicted of the charges in Fredericksburg and in Fairfax County.

The university said the Board of Visitors will name an interim president and develop a timeline for recruiting Hample's successor.
