Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News
Wright State University has named an interim dean of its Lake Campus in Celina.
Dan Krane, professor of biological sciences will take over the top leadership spot at Wright State’s only branch campus Aug. 1. Krane joined the Wright State Department of Biological Sciences in 1993.
“I’m very happy to have the opportunity to support the faculty and staff of Lake Campus,” Krane said. “I look forward to doing all that I can to help them continue to deliver on their mission to be the focal point for the educational and cultural advancement of the residents of West Central Ohio.”
Karne will take the helm of the WSU Lake Campus just over a month after the former dean was told to resign by president Cheryl Schrader.
Lake Campus dean Jay Albayyari resigned June 30 after receiving a letter from Schrader on June 13, asking him to submit his resignation. The letter and several emails between Albayyari and provost Sue Edwards were obtained by the Dayton Daily News through a public records request.
In asking for Albayyari’s resignation, Schrader cited “serious concerns” regarding the dean’s “interactions with Lake Campus personnel” and the “climate” created by Albayyari’s “management style,” according to the letter. Albayyari has denied Schrader’s claims.
