USNH Chancellor to Retire in March
DURHAM - University System of New Hampshire Chancellor, Edward MacKay will retire effective next spring.
He has served as chancellor since July 2009 and has worked for the University System for more than 36 years.
In a statement to the University System Board of Trustees, MacKay said: "From my perspective the USNH has provided, and continues to provide, an extraordinary value for the citizens of New Hampshire and is integral to sustaining the quality of life we cherish. There are many crucial tasks to be accomplished during the next eight months, including advocacy for our biennial budget requests and a number of important, long-term collaborative efforts with the Community College System. I am enthusiastic about completing this work and facilitating the continuing evolution and success of the USNH."
MacKay served as the USNH vice chancellor from 1987 to 2009, and in senior capacities in budgeting and financial planning with USNH since 1979. He began his higher education career in New Hampshire at Keene State College in 1976.
"For the better part of four decades, Ed MacKay has tirelessly supported, advocated for and enhanced public higher education in New Hampshire. On behalf of the USNH Board of Trustees, we want to express our collective gratitude for his contributions, including the leadership role he has played as USNH chancellor," USNH Board Chair Richard Galway said. "We appreciate the advance notice regarding his decision to retire next March as it will give the Board ample time to put in place plans for a smooth change in leadership."
