(Neb)-State College Chancellor Retiring
LINCOLN - Nebraska State College System Chancellor Dr Stan Carpenter is retiring after 18 years, but with no date set. In fact, Carpenter's retirement hasn't officially been announced, at least not directly.
A notice sent out from the NSCS office on Thursday for a special board of trustees meeting next Tuesday in Lincoln listed as the only agenda items creation of a chancellor search committee and discussion and possible action on the search process for a chancellor.
NSCS spokesman Judi Yorges confirmed for the Omaha World Herald Thursday night that Carpenter is retiring and that no date for it has been decided yet.
Carpenter has led the Nebraska State College System longer than anyone else, having become executive director in 2000. The job title was later changed to chancellor to more clearly reflect his duties and roughly equivalent status with the top administrators at the University of Nebraska campuses.
During Carpenter's tenure as chancellor, the three state colleges have sharply increased the number of post-graduate degree programs they offer, begun and expanded on-line courses, created the Rural Health Opportunities and Rural Law Opportunities programs, and had major construction and reconstruction projects.
Carpenter came to the NSCS after 18 years as general counsel and director of employee relations for the Vermont State Colleges. Before that, he practiced law in Cincinnati, Ohio, after a successful career as a high school teacher. He was also an adjunct instructor at several colleges in Ohio and Vermont.
