John Halstead, PhD, president of The College at Brockport, announced Tuesday he plans to retire in August 2015.

Chair of Brockport’s College Council Scott Turner was involved in the search to bring President Halstead to Brockport. He said, “John Halstead has had a remarkable tenure at the helm of The College at Brockport,” said Turner. “Chief among his many, many accomplishments are the College’s intense focus on student success, the strength of the College’s senior leadership team, and the launch of our first ever comprehensive capital campaign, a campaign that is nearing its goal of $25 million. We will miss John’s leadership after the end of this academic year, but he will leave an institution well positioned for many years into the future.”

Halstead became president in August 2005 following several years as president of Mansfield University in Pennsylvania. He has also served in vice presidential positions at University of Maine and Gonzaga University.
