The president of Marymount University is retiring, the school announced today.

Dr. James Bundschuh has served as Marymount’s president since July 2001. He oversaw the recently-completed 26th Street Project, which added several new buildings to the school’s main North Arlington campus.

Marymount is a Catholic university with approximately 3,600 students enrolled in a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. The school has about 450 full-time employees and 300 part-time employees.

Marymount’s press release about Dr. Bundschuh’s retirement, after the jump.

Arlington, VA – Dr. James E. Bundschuh, Marymount University’s fifth president, has announced that he will retire on June 30, 2011, after serving for 10 years.

Marymount’s Board of Trustees has begun a national search for the University’s next president. The Board will engage a search firm and has assembled a committee that includes trustees and representatives from the campus community to evaluate applicants.

Under Dr. Bundschuh’s leadership, Marymount has achieved record enrollments; completed the largest capital campaign in its history; constructed a new residential and academic complex; and expanded its offerings to include an undergraduate Honors Program and the University’s first two doctoral programs.

Reflecting on his years at the University, Dr. Bundschuh said, “I have had the privilege of seeing Marymount through the first decade of the 21st century and am so proud of what we have been able to accomplish. I am confident that Marymount is positioned to achieve even greater levels of excellence and distinction in the future.”

    Based on how Marymount has changed during his tenure, it appears he did a spectacular job as president.

    Those new buildings are butt-ugly.

      I disagree, the new buildings on what was a surface parking lot is a great improvement to the campus. And not butt-ugly.

      Lou’s right. No character. They look like prefab concrete slabs slapped up against a steel frame.
