“If I could choose one word that describes the role of a trustee, that would be stewardship, and David Yeager exemplifies that description as well as anyone I’ve ever met,” said Steve Cobb, chair of the board of trusteest. “He is a consummate professional, highly responsible and has a high degree of wisdom and experience. The board of trustees has a great deal of faith in him, and we look forward to Dave taking the reins on this extremely important endeavor.”
Yeager will lead a 17 member search committee including a cross-section of campus representatives and the Dayton community.
The search firm Isaacson, Miller will assist the committee.
Curran announced his plans in December to step down in June 2016.
