BUTTE, Mont. (AP) Montana Tech chancellor Don Blackketter has announced he is retiring at the end of the school year.

Since Blackketter arrived at the Butte school in 2011, Montana Tech has seen new construction, the addition of a doctoral degree and a name change to Montana Technological University. It has also become the first special-focus university in the Montana university system.

The Montana Standard reports Blackketter said he is retiring in June to spend more time with his family and travel.

Until then, he will continue to address Montana Tech's enrollment decline from a steady 2,600 students to about 2,300 students last year. The school had to make some cuts due to a $3 million budget shortfall.

Commissioner of Higher Education Clayton Christian says a national search will be conducted to find a new chancellor.
