LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas’ new governor says he appreciates the work that outgoing University of Arkansas Chancellor G. David Gearhart did for the state.

Gearhart said Monday he would retire as chancellor in July and take a teaching position at the Fayetteville campus. He has led the school since 2008. Prior to becoming university chancellor, Gearhart led a $1 billion fundraising campaign.

Gov.-elect Asa Hutchinson says Gearhart led the school through tremendous growth in enrollment, achievement and influence and had the school poised to become a Top 50 research institution.
