SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio - Norte Dame College announced its fourteenth president of the College Friday.
Thomas Kruczek will become president after Dr. Andrew Roth retires June 30.
Kruczek is currently the Dean of the College of Business and Management at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., where he has been since 2011.
Kruczek stated, “I am honored to be asked to serve as the next president of Notre Dame College. I am passionate about the liberal arts and have an abiding belief in the relevance and value in providing an outstanding liberal arts education for students. I know firsthand the valuable foundation it provided me, and there is no question a solid liberal arts education is a huge advantage for any graduate. Our country’s future rests on individuals with strong critical thinking skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills, and a broad knowledge base that trains them to see the "big picture." A liberal arts education gives students every skill they need for a successful life and career. That's the beauty and the strength of what Notre Dame College provides her students.”
“I am delighted that after a diligent and thoughtful national search, we have come up with the best choice for our College’s next president,” said Mac Donley, chairman of the Notre Dame College Board of Trustees. “The fact that we have been able to attract an individual of Mr. Kruczek’s caliber is testimony to the outstanding progress the College has made over the past 11years. The talent of the candidates who came forward during the search is a reflection of the College’s growing reputation for quality education, service to students and respect for all. I have complete confidence in Mr. Kruczek as our next president, and I look forward to working with him, as I am sure we all do.”
