Jared Cohon to retire as Carnegie Mellon U. president in 2013

 
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
 
August 18, 2010
 
Despite what he called pressure from school board members to serve a fourth five-year term as Carnegie Mellon University's president, Jared L. Cohon announced yesterday that he would step down on June 30, 2013.

"It's just time," Cohon, 62, said during a conference call with reporters. A CMU tenured-faculty member, he plans to teach courses spanning civil and environmental engineering and public policy.

"Sometimes individuals can go on for longer than they should," Cohon said. "Universities need new leaders from time to time. They need people with fresh ideas."

Still, it will be difficult to give up his post as president, he said. "I'll miss everything about it."

Cohon has led CMU since 1997. By the time he retires as the university's head, he will have been the school's third-longest serving president with 16 years at the helm. During his tenure, CMU's enrollment has grown, research dollars have ballooned, and its endowment has increased.
