Glenville State College is looking for a new president to begin duties next July.

President Peter Barr announced in August he will retire at the end of the current academic year.

The school announced this week that its Board of Governors had initiated a search for the next president. A news release said the school is looking for a leader to build on its mission and “extend its role in West Virginia and the region.”

Glenville State is located in central West Virginia’s Mountain Lakes Region and has 1,800 students, primarily from West Virginia.
