TULSA, Okla. (AP) - University of Tulsa President Steadman Upham has announced plans to retire at the end of the year.

Upham said in a statement released Thursday by TU that his 12 years as the university’s president has been “the most exciting and fulfilling” of his career.

This is the second time Upham has retired. He stepped down in June 2012, but returned when Geoffrey Orsak was fired as president less than three months later.

The release says Upham plans to take a sabbatical in 2017, then return to TU as a faculty member and that the university’s board of trustees has begun the process of finding a successor.
