West Liberty University will soon be seeing a change in leadership, as President Stephen Greiner announced plans to retire next year at a press conference on Tuesday.

Greiner plans to end his tenure as West Liberty’s 36th president on June 30th, 2020.

Greiner became president in 2016, taking over for interim president John McCullough, who temporarily filled the spot after former university president Robin Capehart stepped down amid an ethics investigation.

Under President Greiner, West Liberty has added 13 new academic offerings and has seen an enrollment growth of 10 percent.

In an email sent to students Greiner wrote that serving as president of West Liberty University “has been the greatest honor of my professional life.”

West Liberty University is now conducting a nationwide search for their next president.
