PITTSBURGH (AP) — The University of Pittsburgh says Chancellor Mark Nordenberg will chair the school’s Institute of Politics after he steps down as head of the school Aug. 1.

Nordenberg announced in February that he was quitting as chancellor after 19 years.

The 65-year-old administrator will become the chair of the Institute of Politics effective Jan. 1.

The institute is an independent nonprofit that’s operated within the university for more than 20 years. Its purpose is to provide a neutral forum to examine complex issues, and has provided information to legislators and others on topics including Marcellus Shale drilling and public health care.

Nordenberg was hired as a law professor at Pitt in 1977.

Pitt has about 25,000 undergraduate and 10,000 graduate students.
