Grove City College President Richard G. Jewell will retire from his post at the end of the academic year.

Jewell, 68, a lawyer and Pittsburgh businessman, was named president of Grove City in 2003. The 1967 graduate of the college on Tuesday announced his plans to retire at the school's 138th convocation.

“It is time to pass the baton to the next leader and for me to move on from this place that I love, knowing that together we have made a difference in the lives of our students and graduates,” Jewell said.

Before assuming the presidency of the private liberal arts school 70 miles north of Pittsburgh, Jewell was a director of Navigant Consulting Inc., a large forensic accounting firm.

He previously served as executive vice president of the University of Pittsburgh Trust, the holding entity for five of the university's applied research companies. He was a member of the university's senior management council and president of Pittsburgh Applied Research Corp., the for-profit operating company of the University of Pittsburgh Applied Research Center in Harmarville.

During Jewell's tenure at Grove City, the college added several major buildings to its 174-acre campus and increased enrollment by 10 percent, officials said.

A Grove City spokeswoman said Jewell and his wife, Dayl, plan to return to their home in Bethel Park. They had been living in Grove City.
