He takes over from Cheryl B. Schrader, who had served as S&T chancellor since 2012 before accepting the position of president of Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

His appointment, approved by the UM System Board of Curators in April, is for one year. He will not be a candidate for the permanent chancellor position. A national search to fill that position begins this fall.
