NEW LONDON, N.H. (AP) — Colby-Sawyer President Thomas Galligan Jr. says he will step down after 10 years in office when his second term ends in 2016.
He made the announcement at a Sept. 1 meeting for faculty and staff.
Galligan, who says he has no plans yet, was dean and a professor of law at the University of Tennessee College of Law when the Colby-Sawyer Board of Trustees picked him to be the private college's eighth president in 2006.
During his tenure, Galligan worked to make the college to become a more diverse campus. The number of majors nearly doubled under his leadership and the college launched online education programs and revamped its curricular requirements. Colby-Sawyer also opened the School of Health Professions.
The college hopes to name a successor in February.
