Saint Vincent College plans to announce its new president Friday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, the college said.

Brother Norman Hippsannounced in April he would leave the position at the end of June. Hipps, 75, has been the Unity-based college’s president for nine years.

J. Christopher Donahue, chairman of the college’s board of directors and CEO Federated Investors Inc., is scheduled to announce the new president, according to the college.

Art Rooney II, president and co-owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be among those speaking at the press conference.

Saint Vincent will provide an update on the $100 million capital campaign it announced in December 2017, said Suzanne English, the college’s vice president of marketing and communications.

The capital campaign has supported four major construction projects totaling $40 million, including the $5.7 million James F. Will Engineering and Biomedical Sciences Hall which opened in November 2017. The library has been expanded and updated and money was used for technology updates for Alfred Hall classrooms, the Robert S. Carey Student Center, and dining expansion to include student life and community center.

The college earmarked $20 million to strengthen programs, including the Students First Fund, the Fred Rogers Center, academic and support services and student life.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
