The university announced two vice presidents would be stepping down from their respective positions in an email from President Beverly Warren on Wednesday.

Gregg Floyd, the senior vice president for Finance and Administration, and Greg Jarvie, the vice president for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, have both decided to retire based on personal reasons.

Floyd, 63, intends to stay with the university until a search process concludes and a transition period ends, while Jarvie, 55, will leave Kent State on July 31.

“I was actually contemplating last year to retire in May and was asked to stay on one more year in transition and was more than happy to do that,” Jarvie said. “(Retiring has) been a thought for many years of planning and preparing yourself.”

Floyd was unavailable for comment at press time.

Floyd started at Kent State in 2008, while Jarvie has been with the university since 1986 as a master’s student. He graduated in 1990.

Search processes to replace them are still being decided as both vice presidents move into the last stage of their roles at the university.

“I’ve got a lot of things that I’ve had to, because of time schedule, put on the back burner,” Jarvie said. “I’m going to do some things that I once enjoyed. I used to be an avid golfer. I’m also looking to spend more time in the winter in the south.”
