Dr. Elizabeth King, president and CEO of the Wichita State University Foundation and Alumni Engagement, announced today her intention to retire in six months after a national search to fill her position is conducted.

King began her tenure at Wichita State in 1991 as vice president of university advancement and executive director of both the WSU Foundation and the WSU Board of Trustees, as well as serving as the administrative liaison with the WSU Alumni Association. She was the second female vice president in Wichita State’s history at the time. In 2007, she was appointed president and CEO of the Foundation and now serves the recently merged Foundation and Alumni Engagement team in the same position.
