TULSA — On Thursday the University of Tulsa Board of Trustees met and made several important decisions, including accepting the resignation of TU's President Dr. Gerard P. Clancy, M.D., officials say.

During Clancy's medical leave, Levit serves as acting president and has served as provost since May 7, 2018, officials say.
