MSU President To Retire

Posted: Updated:
Midwestern State University President Dr. Jesse W. Rogers is planning his retirement. 

Dr. Rogers announced his plans during a Board of Regents meeting Friday morning. The following statement was then released to Newschannel 6: 

I plan to retire on August 31, 2015, or such date thereafter that the MSU Board of Regents has announced my successor
and he or she has taken office.

Much remains to be done over the next fifteen months, including planning for the 84th Legislative session in Austin, which
begins in January.        

By the time of my retirement I will have spent 48 years at Midwestern. I believe that I will be able to say then what I say
now: they have been good years and brought me a great deal of satisfaction, professionally and personally. Over the decades,
the university has made significant advances, and I have been pleased to have been present to witness them. As for the future,
I look forward to a more flexible schedule than now and to pursuing interests long on hold. I will continue to be involved in
higher education in one form or another. 

Dr. Rogers is expected to address the media later today.
