President Pumerantz to retire Sept. 8

President Pumerantz to retire Sept. 8

Philip Pumerantz, PhD, the founding and sole president of Western University of Health Sciences since its inception in 1977 as the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP), has announced he will retire from the presidency effective September 8, 2015.

Pumerantz made the announcement in a letter to WesternU Board of Trustees Chair Richard Bond, DO. Bond holds the distinction of being COMP’s first graduate, as he was first in line at the College’s inaugural Commencement exercises in 1982.

“The time has come for me to move to a new role, and in the process allow for an orderly transition and wise leadership succession for the University,” Pumerantz’s letter to Bond read.

Pumerantz is the second-longest currently serving university president in the United States, having officially taken office on September 6, 1977 – the day after Labor Day. His tenure as a university president is currently exceeded only by Dr. Norman Francis of Xavier University (45 years).

Pumerantz’s retirement date also is the day after Labor Day.
