Pitt chancellor announces retirement

Written by The Associated Press | Jun 28, 2013 11:23 AM

(Pittsburgh) -- University of Pittsburgh chancellor Mark Nordenberg says he's stepping down from that post next August, but hopes to remain at the school as a professor.

Nordenberg announced his decision at a board of trustees meeting today, and a subsequent news release says a committee is being formed to choose his replacement.

Nordenberg is 64 and began working in the university's law school in 1977. He became the law school's dean in 1985 and held that title for eight years before moving through other administrative posts before coming chancellor in 1996.

Nordenberg succeeded J. Dennis O'Connor. Although Nordenberg plans to remain at the university, he says it's too early to determine specifically what he'll do.
