OU's President Announces Retirement At End Of School Year”

Amid rumors of his retirement, University of Oklahoma President David Boren is scheduled to make an "important announcement" about the university's future Wednesday. His retirement will become official on June 30, 2018, but remains contingent on the naming of a suitable successor.

Boren is the first person in state history to have served as Governor of Oklahoma, U.S. Senator and President of the University of Oklahoma.

Boren, 76, has served as Oklahoma's president for 23 years. Boren has overseen the implementation of 35 new academic programs, including the Honors College and the Institute for American Constitutional Heritage. As Oklahoma's president, Boren was at the heart of the Big 12's expansion push, which quickly fizzled after the league announced it would explore expansion last July. It has also had the highest freshmen-to-sophomore retention rates in university history, and the amount of of private scholarship money available to students has quadrupled since Boren's tenure began.
