Gustavus President To Retire Next Year

 

Gustavus Adolphus College

ST. PETER, (AP) – The president of Gustavus Adolphus College has announced his retirement.

Jack Ohle will step down next year after prolonged criticism from faculty and students over his approach to the job.

Ohle announced he will retire June 30, 2014, when his contract is up.  His retirement comes at the end of his sixth year as Gustavus president.

Ohle tells The Free Press of Mankato (http://bit.ly/1cs87J5 ) his decision has to do with timing. He will be 67 at the end of his tenure and will have worked in higher education administration for 44 years.

Numerous faculty, students and alumni have been calling for Ohle’s resignation, citing complaints about his leadership.

Ohle says the tension has been difficult. But he says, “In the end, you have to think beyond that.”
