Longtime Wofford College President Benjamin B. Dunlap told the school’s trustees he plans to step down in June of next year.
Dunlap is the school’s 10th president and has served in that capacity since 2000; he will retain his appointment as Chapman Family Professor of Humanities and after a year-long sabbatical will return to teaching duties at the school.
“At this morning’s meeting of the board of trustees, I announced my plans to retire as president of Wofford College as of June 30, 2013,” Dunlap said in a statement on Tuesday. “That is a little less than 14 months from now. I’m making the announcement so far in advance in order to give the Board plenty of time to conduct a national search for my successor.
“I have retained my appointment as the Chapman Family Professor in the Humanities, and, after a year’s sabbatical leave, I intend to return to teaching at Wofford. I also plan to devote more time to other continuing commitments, such as my role as senior moderator for the Aspen Institute and for the Liberty Fellowship of South Carolina.”
J. Harold Chandler, chairman of the Board of Trustees said, “There is only one Bernie Dunlap, and Wofford is fortunate to have had him as our leader for the past 12 years. His contributions are immeasurable. Bernie has lifted our sights on many fronts, which will continue to benefit Wofford for years into the future. And, speaking of the future, we at Wofford are more excited than ever as to what can be accomplished. But for now, our profound gratitude goes to Bernie and his wife, Anne, for their wonderful service to our college.”
