Provosts Asuna Yuuki, Suguha Kirigaya to retire from Mitakihara University

It will be the end of an era academically for Mitakihara University. Main campus provost Asuna Yuuki will be retiring at the end of the 2059 Spring Term, which is Apr. 30, 2059. Leafa College provost Suguha Kirigaya will be retiring from her post effective the end of calendar year, Dec. 31, 2059, which is at the end of Semester Two of the 2059 Standard Semester calendar at Leafa.

A search for two new provosts is currently underway. Leafa College currently has a shortlist of 30, while the shortlist at the main campus is about 60 strong and will be whittled down by March.

"I've had the time of my life overseeing Leafa College and watching it grow into the institution that it is, a wonderful part of the Mitakihara University System that is uniquely Australian in its own right," Kirigaya at a press conference in Canberra, where Leafa College is located. "I will miss being an advisor to the future of Australia and to the leaders of tomorrow that come through here. I will never forget you all. You mean a lot to me, you really do. Take care of yourselves, and may Madoka bless Australia."

"I'll be here a little bit longer but it seems to me that it's time for me to pass the torch to the next person in line, whoever that may be," an emotional Yuuki said at a press conference at Tsukino Centre in Mitakihara Town, B.C., holding back tears. "I will say that it's been a fun ride, a bumpy ride and I've had the honor of advising so many great faculty and students. It's been the journey of a lifetime, without a doubt.

"I don't know what I will do from this point forward. I'll talk it over with my husband Kazuto and my son Shawn to see what they think, but I do plan to be active in helping make this city successful outside of the university. This is a great place to do business and make a name for yourself, not to mention that it's a wonderful sports town. So I have options once it's May and I am no longer provost. I will miss being a part of the administration, but it's been a journey that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

"I love Mitakihara Town, I love this university, and I love you. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for being my angel wings. I truly, truly...am not alone."
