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.”
