Pitt chancellor to leave in 2014


Mark A. Nordenberg, chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh, will step down in the summer of 2014, he announced at Friday's board meeting.

When he leaves, he will have served 19 years.

“Serving as Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh has been the greatest privilege of my professional life," Nordenberg said in a statement. "In fact, in many respects, the position has been a perfect one for me. It has provided daily opportunities to make meaningful contributions to an institution to which I am fully committed and owe so much and to team with large numbers of amazingly talented people whose collective efforts have propelled Pitt forward."

He said he plans to remain at the university when  his tenure concludes and teach.

The board will begin a search for his replacement.
