Board of Trustees to Launch Search for New College Leadership 

David P. Haney, Ph.D., is stepping down from his position as president of Hiram College and retiring, effective June 30, 2023. Dr. Haney served as interim president beginning in fall 2020 and was appointed president in June 2021.  

“Dr. Haney’s focus was positioning Hiram to better meet the needs of its students today and in the future,” Board of Trustees Chair Robert Turner said. “He made meaningful contributions that advanced Hiram’s mission to foster intellectual excellence and social responsibility, enabling our students to thrive in their chosen careers and succeed in life. We thank him for his service, and we certainly wish him the best.”  

During his tenure, Dr. Haney led the College through a challenging period in Hiram’s history while ensuring the overall health and safety of the campus community during the COVID crisis. He helped evolve initiatives and develop long-term strategies for new academic offerings, enrollment marketing, student transfer agreements, community engagement, diversity and inclusion, campus sustainability, and financial stability.  

Turner said the leadership transition comes at a time of strength for the 173-year-old college.  

“A change of this magnitude is always challenging, but we’re thrilled that we have leadership and staff in place with the kind of experience and expertise to make this a seamless transition.” 

Rob Bohrer, vice president for academic and student affairs and dean of the College, has been named acting president of the College and will play a key role in day-to-day decision-making until a new president is named. He will report directly to Turner.
