Higher Education Chancellor Announces Resignation

Chancellor Paul G. Risser announced Thursday that he will be resigning from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, effective July 28.

Phil Moss, vice chancellor for academic affairs, has been named interim chancellor. The State Regents announced that they will have a special meeting July 12 to deliberate on replacing the chancellor.
