University of Indianapolis President Beverley Pitts announced Monday this will be her last of a seven-year term as university president. Pitts says she will miss the growth and excitement of the university.

“This is a great year for us, because, as you know, we’re going to host one of the Super Bowl teams, and so it’s kind of a exciting year and I’ll miss that,” she says. “But for any president it’s always just campus life and the campus environment that you miss.”

Pitts says she looks forward to enjoying things outside of academic life.

“I think any president knows that it’s pretty much a full-time, 24/7 job. And I’m a journalist, journalism is my field, so I look forward to some writing. And I’m going to stay engaged in the Indianapolis area community.”

Pitts will retire at the end of the academic year.
