LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Longtime University of Arkansas at Little Rock chancellor Joel Anderson is planning to retire next year after 45 years at the university.

Anderson has served as UALR’s chancellor since 2003. Before that, he served as the university provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs and as founding dean of the graduate school.

Anderson says he’s pleased to see how UALR has grown. Enrollment this year increased by 1.2 percent, including a 19 percent increase in first-time college students. During Anderson’s tenure as chancellor the campus completed several building projects, including the Jack Stephens Center.

Anderson’s retirement will be effective June 30, 2016.
