BLACKSBURG, Va., May 14 (UPI) -- Charles Steger, president of Virginia Tech, said Tuesday he will retire from the position he has held at the university since 2000.

Steger, 65, a three-time graduate of the Blacksburg, Va., school, added he would remain until his replacement is found.

Under Steger's direction, Virginia Tech's research portfolio tripled, undergraduate and graduate enrollment grew and over $1 billion in private funding was raised. His presidency also involved leading the university after the April 16, 2007 on-campus shootings, the Roanoke, Va., Times reported.
