Southern Illinois University President Glenn Poshard says he's retiring. Poshard says he will retire after the upcoming school year concludes next summer. His contract runs into 2015. He received a four-year contract extension four years ago. Poshard has led the university since 2005. In recent years he has faced a rift with trustee Roger Herrin. The school's board of trustees is on retreat this week at a facility near Carbondale.
