BALTIMORE (AP) — Robert Bogomolny plans to step down next year after more than a decade as president of the University of Baltimore.

Bogomolny tells The Daily Record of Baltimore that he thought he’d spend three to five years leading the downtown university. He says he’ll be 76 when he steps down, “and it seems it’s time … to fade quietly into retirement.”

When Bogomolny became president in 2002, UB was a two-year university that offered a handful of graduate programs. Now it’s a four-year school with more diverse academic offerings, a larger faculty, surging enrollment and several new buildings.

He says he knew the university needed to change. In 2007, UB admitted its first freshman class in 32 years. It has added 31 academic programs since he came on board.
