Susan Koch, who took over the top role at the University of Illinois Springfield in 2011, announced Friday she will retire effective June 30. She said she wants to spend more time with family.
“It is a bittersweet decision. I love the chancellor role and it’s been an absolute delight to work with students and faculty, staff, donors and members of the community,” Koch said. “But you come to a point in your life where you start thinking about some other things.”
