DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The University of Dayton is on the market for a new provost.

Dr. Joseph Saliba is returning to the faculty in the School of Engineering.

University President Daniel Curran says he expected to name an interim provost soon.

“I appreciate Dr. Saliba’s dedication, strong commitment to our Catholic, Marianist philosophy of education and his service as provost. Under his leadership, we’ve increased the number of full-time faculty, redesigned our undergraduate general education curriculum and introduced a number of other curricular innovations, such as new degree programs in clean and renewable energy as well as in the health sciences,” said Dr. Curran.

In an email to faculty and staff, Curran said he will meet with the board of trustees and academic leaders on the best way to move forward. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
