The Indiana University South Bend chancellor is leaving at the end of the school year. Terry Allison, who became chancellor in 2013, said in a statement "I'm at the point in my life and career where it is time to pursue the next chapter." IUSB says it will work quickly to appoint an interim chancellor and begin the search to fill the permanent role by the end of the semester.

Allison adds "this was one of the most difficult decisions of my life, but both personally and professionally, the right decision at this time. I have loved serving as your chancellor since I arrived almost five years ago."

During his tenure, Allison oversaw the development of a strategic plan that runs through 2020, growth of the number of varsity sports on campus from three to 12 and acquisition of the Wooden Indian Motel and Club Landing property for potential future development. IUSB's four-year graduation rate also increased during his time on campus.

Indiana University Executive Vice President for University Academic Affairs John Applegate said "Indiana University is very grateful to Chancellor Allison for his leadership of the IU South Bend campus. He has served the campus and university in an exemplary manner, bringing energy, creativity, and valuable experience to IU South Bend at a time of significant challenge."
