President of OU-Tulsa stepping down

Updated:
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - University of Oklahoma-Tulsa President Ken Levit said Tuesday he would leave his job on June 1 to take over as executive director of the George Kaiser Family Foundation.

Levit has served as president of OU's Tulsa campus for 4 1/2 years. During which time, enrollment grew 48%, the number of faculty members rose 76% and outside research funding increased to $4.68 million annually.

Gerry Clancy will serve as interim president and continue to be the Tulsa campus' College of Medicine dean until a new dean is found.

OU regents will officially appoint Clancy as interim leader at their May meeting. OU President David Boren said the regents could make Clancy's appointment permanent ``at an appropriate time in the future.''

The 5-year-old Kaiser Family Foundation focuses on early intervention through education and health care, social services that serve the impoverished and others in need, and community enhancement.

Levit was OU-Tulsa's second president, following Ken Lackey, who held the job two years.
