KENT, Ohio (AP) — Kent State University's president plans to retire next year.

Sixty-six-year-old Lester Lefton announced his retirement plans Wednesday, effective July 1, 2014. He became Kent State's president in 2006.

During his tenure, Kent State enrollment has grown 25 percent to more than 42,000, and the university launched a $200 million campus improvement project.

While he was president, Kent State set a record with a $265 million fundraising drive and acquired a college of podiatric medicine located in Independence near Cleveland.
