FAYETTEVILLE — Robert C. McMath, who served as the dean who launched the Honors College at the University of Arkansas, has announced his retirement.

McMath is to leave in August after he completes eight years as the leader of the program for the school's most talented students.

Under McMath, the college has expanded enrollment by 44 percent and the average grade-point average for students in the program rose from 3.58 to 3.76. The college also has a retention rate of 90 percent of freshman students since 2005.

McMath was a history professor and administrator at Georgia Tech before arriving at the Fayetteville campus.

UA officials say the school will conduct a national search for its next Honors College dean.
