The University of Rochester has named an interim president.
Professor Richard Feldman, who served as dean of the College from 2006 to 2017, will succeed Joel Seligman, who steps down on Feb. 28.
"As a scholar, an award-winning teacher, and a supremely capable and compassionate administrator, Rich Feldman is respected and admired by students, faculty, and staff alike," Danny Wegman, Chair, University of Rochester Board of Trustees said in a statement. "The University could not ask for a better leader for this next chapter in the institution’s history."
In his interview with WXXI, Seligman said his decision came before the report, which mostly vindicated the university, was published.
