During a Wednesday morning meeting with faculty and staff at Eastern Kentucky University, President Doug Whitlock announced his retirement. Whitlock, who has spent his entire higher education career at EKU, says his administration will end at the conclusion of this academic year.
Whitlock has been president of Eastern Kentucky University since 2007. This is Whitlock’s second retirement. He left EKU in 2003 after 27 years at the Richmond school, but was recalled after then-president Joanne Glasser announced her resignation.
