March 20, 2007 :: Higher Education Vice Chancellor Phil Moss Announces Resignation
Dr. Phil Moss, vice chancellor for academic affairs and recent interim chancellor for the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education, announced his retirement at last week’s State Regents meeting, effective July 2007.
Chancellor Glen D. Johnson praised Moss for his leadership and wished him continued success in his future endeavors.
“Dr. Moss has been a tremendous asset to the state system, having served 11 years with the State Regents office,” Johnson said. “He demonstrated his leadership and expertise in numerous projects and, of course, he did an outstanding job in his role as interim chancellor.”
Moss served in the capacity as vice chancellor for three years and is responsible for academic programs, planning, and policy within the state system. He recently completed a five-month term as interim chancellor for the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education, until current chancellor Johnson was appointed in January.
After leaving the State Regents in June, Moss will provide contractual education consulting for state, regional and national projects, and he also is interested in teaching.
“It has been both an honor and a privilege to have served the state system,” Moss said. “I believe some new opportunities will allow me to focus on some specific areas of interest, while still allowing me to be an advocate for Oklahoma higher education.”
Johnson said that a search for a replacement will begin immediately.
