University of Tulsa President Steadman Upham will retire at the end of 2016 after a four-year second tenure.
Upham was first hired as TU president in 2004. He was previously president and CEO of Claremont Graduate University in Southern California.
When he retired in June 2012, former Southern Methodist University Lyle School of Engineering Dean Geoffrey Orsak replaced him.
Orsak was fired after 74 days, and TU's trustees called on Upham to return.
