MADISON, Wis. -

Edgewood College President Dan Carey announced Tuesday he will retire in September 2014, according to a release. Carey began his tenure as the 11th president of the college on Aug. 1, 2004.

Carey worked on enhancing the campus community, putting students first, expanding and strengthening academic programs and leading through relationships during his time as president of Edgewood College, according to the release.

“Today is the perfect opportunity to thank the entire Edgewood College community for the many significant achievements of the past decade,” Carey said. “I am deeply indebted to the dedicated board of trustees, faculty, staff and strong leadership team. The challenges we met, and the success the college has seen are not mine. They belong to the entire Edgewood College community. For that I am very grateful.”

The board will coordinate listening sessions on campus for faculty, staff and students to begin the process of identifying Carey’s successor.
