Provost and Executive Vice President for academic affairs Bobby Gempesaw announced yesterday that he will be resigning July 1 to accept the position of president at St. John's University in New York City.

"While I am deeply honored to be appointed as the first lay president of one of the nation's largest Catholic universities, I feel intense sadness about leaving Miami and those with whom I have had the privilege of working during my term as provost," Gempesaw wrote in an email to all faculty yesterday morning.

Since arriving at Miami in May 2011, Gempesaw has been involved in a number of different initiatives including the development of the Miami 2020 strategic plan, the establishment of the new winter term and the Miami Plan redesign, among others. President David Hodge lauded his leadership through this time of transition.

"Bobby has provided extraordinary forward-looking leadership through a time of great change in higher education and certainly at Miami. We are grateful for the momentum he has created. We will miss him greatly, but wish him every success as he takes on this historic appointment," Hodge said in a university press release.
