The president of the University of Dayton has announced plans to step down. Daniel Curran has been in the position for 12 years, and during that time the university has opened up an institute in China and converted the old headquarters of NCR into the University of Dayton Research Institute, among other investments. Curran stands out as the first president ever at this Catholic institution who is not a Marianist brother or priest.

Curran, who’s a sociologist, will stay on as a faculty member at UD after June 2016. The board of trustees is planning a national search for a new president.
