In an email to the Transylvania University campus on Monday afternoon, Dr. Seamus Carey indicated that he would step down as President of Transylvania University this summer. The announcement was made in conjunction with Chairman of the Board of Trustees William T. “Bill” Young Jr. It was announced Tuesday that Dr. Carey will become the 9th President of Iona College.

Young indicated that an interim president will be named for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year.

Dr. Carey has served as President for the past five years.

The announcement comes among several other changes at the top of Transylvania’s administration. Those changes include:

  • An active search for a new Academic Dean following the departure of Dr. Laura Bryan earlier this year.
  • The appointment of Ms. Deepa Dubal as Vice President for Information Technology earlier on Monday May 13.
  • The appointment of Dr. Steve Angelucci as both the Interim Vice President for Advancement as well as the incoming Vice President for Campaign Initiatives after the departure of Mr. Marty Smith from that position earlier this year.
