ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - The chancellor of Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla is planning to retire.

John Carney III has served as chancellor since 2005. The university said in a news release Wednesday that the 69-year-old chancellor plans to retire Aug. 31, after the summer session.

The school is one of four campuses in the University of Missouri system.

Under Carney, the university changed its name from the University of Missouri-Rolla to Missouri University of Science and Technology. It also raised nearly $212 million in private funds for scholarships, academic programs, facilities and equipment.
