Robert Morris taps provost as interim leader
Robert Morris University trustees on Tuesday said Provost David L. Jamison will become interim university president, effective June 30.
Robert Morris is seeking a permanent replacement for Gregory G. Dell'Omo, who will become president of Rider University in his home state of New Jersey.
He became RMU president in 2005.
Jamison has been provost and senior vice president for academic affairs since 2008. From 2002 to 2008 he was dean of RMU's School of Communications and Information Systems. He earned his bachelor's degree from Muskingum College, a master's degree in communication from the University of Michigan, and his law degree from the University of Michigan.
RMU's search for its eighth president is on schedule, said Richard Harshman, chair of the search committee and vice chair of the Board of Trustees.
Presidential candidates must submit applications by May 1. The committee is scheduled to interview top contenders that month.
Robert Morris has about 5,400 undergraduate students.
