BATON ROUGE - After 35 years of service to the higher education community, Dr. William Jenkins has retired for a second time.

Jenkins, who retired in 2007, came out of retirement in 2012 to serve Louisiana State University as its interim system president and Baton Rouge campus chancellor.

Since Jenkins took the reigns, he has led the university's reorganization efforts, holding various public forums throughout the LSU system, serving as a member of the Transition Advisory Team and adding feedback to a variety of departments and boards.

Jenkins has worked at LSU since 1988 and was first named chancellor of LSU in 1996.

As Jenkins steps down, F. King Alexander will take over as LSU system president and main-campus chancellor in the first week of July.

News 2's Michael Shingleton will have an interview with Jenkins about the road ahead for LSU's new president tonight.
