President Clancy steps down, citing medical issues

Effective Jan. 17, Provost Janet Levit has been temporarily designated as acting President of the University of Tulsa. President Gerard Clancy informed the Board of Trustees that due to medical issues, he will be unable to fulfill his duties as President of the University for a number of weeks. This appointment was announced by Frederic Dorwart, Chair of TU’s Board of Trustees, via email to staff and faculty on Friday, Jan. 17, and took place “in accordance with the university’s bylaws.”

While President Clancy remains on medical leave, acting President Levit will retain her role as Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs until such a time as Clancy is able to return.
