creighton-univ(AP) — Creighton University President Timothy Lannon has announced his intention to leave his post in June 2015.

Lannon returned to Creighton in 2011 as Creighton’s 24th president. He said in an announcement Monday that when he returned he wanted “to give back to what the institution gave to me.”

Lannon says there’s another role ahead for him, one “that will be even more pastoral and less administrative.”

He says his announcement gives the Creighton University board of trustees more than a year to find and confirm his successor.
