The dean of the Ohio University Heritage College of Medicine is retiring.

Jack Brose made the announcement during his annual State of the College address.

According to a university news release, Brose will officially retire as dean on July 1.

But, Brose will not leave the university.

He will assume new responsibilities within the provost's office as the university's senior executive director for health services and special assistant to the executive vice president and provost.

The university says Brose will advise and support the provost's office on the development of the recently approved central Ohio regional extension campus.

That will allow OU to expand the training of primary care physicians and explore new health care partnerships in the state.

"This is an important time of growth for health-related disciplines at Ohio University," said Provost Pam Benoit. "I know that Jack will apply the great skill and dedication that he brought to his work as dean to his new assignment.  I am very pleased that the university will be able to depend upon his ability to be a creative and strategic leader and to build on the relationships that he has established across the university and the state."
