CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois University President Glenn Poshard says he's retiring.

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. Thursday's board agenda included Poshard's contract.
