CROOKSTON, Minn. (AP) — University of Minnesota, Crookston Chancellor Charles Casey plans to retire at the end of the school year.

Casey made his announcement during his “State of the Campus” address. His last day as chancellor will be June 30.

Casey has been UMC chancellor since September 2005. He also has held other university leadership roles, including serving as a member of the Board of Regents and as dean and director of University of Minnesota Extension.

During Casey’s tenure the Crookston campus saw significant enrollment gains, including four consecutive years of record enrollment. The number of degree-seeking students hit a record of 1,600 for the 2011 fall semester.

Plans for a national search for Casey’s replacement will be announced soon.
