President Johnson Relieved of Internal University Duties

Without consulting the faculty or conducting a national search, the Board elevates the Boler College Dean Al Miciak to Executive Vice President, a new position granting him oversight over the "Senior Leadership team and all internal matters." Miciak's former superior, Provost and Academic Vice President Steven Herbert, will now report to Miciak on issues regarding new and existing programs. This removes President Johnson from any control over the university's internal affairs, allowing him to "focus on external matters, particularly as they relate to the strategic plan."
