David L. Jamison, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Robert Morris University, will become interim university president, effective June 30.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
