MSUB Chancellor Plans to Retire

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

MSUB has some big shoes to fill.

MSUB Chancellor, Rolf Groseth announced on Thursday that he plans to retire, on Commencement Day in May.

He's been in his current position for four years, and will walk off of the campus on the same day the college graduates walk away with their diplomas in hand.

Groseth said he'll turn 68-years-old this year, and said he had a difficult and very personal decision to make.

"MSU Billings is really a special place, and there aren't very many of us that have the opportunity to lead these wonderful campuses, and so it's really been a blessing to me to have this opportunity. And I really appreciate President Cruzado's confidence in me in naming me to the position, and I'm really proud of what we as a campus have accomplished," said Groseth.

Groseth said when he retires, he plans to travel to China and Asia, and improve his golf game.
