Seton Hall University President Joseph Nyre is resigning.
Nyre, who has been president since 2019, led the school through the COVID-19 pandemic. In a letter to students and staff, Nyre said the university will complete its three-year strategic plan in the coming months. He goes on to write that it has “elevated Seton Hall to greater eminence in Catholic higher education." And with the conclusion if it, Nyre wrote, “Now is the time for new leadership to help write the next chapter of Seton Hall's story.”
Nyre also wrote he informed the Board of Regents that he will take a sabbatical during the upcoming year. He then plans to relinquish his position as president.
“When I was recruited to Seton Hall in 2019, I outlined the need for a dynamic executive team; strategic plan created by a cross-section of the community; campus facilities plan to ground the University's academic vision; and comprehensive advancement campaign to help fund it all,” Nyre wrote in a statement.
He continued, “I am extremely proud of the significant progress and fulfillment that has occurred in each of these areas. Yet these are not my achievements alone, but accomplishments shared by our entire community that have elevated Seton Hall over the past four years.”
Seton Hall Board of Regents Chairman Hank D'Alessandro says an interim president will be named soon.
