SWOSU VP for Student Affairs Dr. Ruth Boyd Announces Retirement

Dr. Ruth Boyd, who has served as vice president for student affairs at Southwestern Oklahoma State University since 2015, has announced her retirement after 17 years on the Weatherford campus.

Boyd said she has taken an online teaching position with a doctoral program at Marymount University in Virginia. This will allow her to remain in Weatherford.

Before becoming VP of student affairs, Boyd served as chair of the SWOSU Education Department and a faculty member in the Department of Education since 2004.

SWOSU President Dr. Diana Lovell expressed great appreciation for Boyd’s distinguished service to SWOSU as a faculty member and administrator. Lovell said she will soon name an acting vice president for student affairs.

A reception in Boyd’s honor will be held Thursday, September 23, from 1:30-3 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom.
