Hiram College President David Haney to Step Down in June

HIRAM, Ohio – David P. Haney will step down from his position as president of Hiram College, effective June 30, the college announced Monday. 

Haney served as interim president beginning in fall 2020 and was appointed president in June 2021.  

During his tenure, Haney led the college through the COVID-19 pandemic and 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.  

“Dr. Haney’s focus was positioning Hiram to better meet the needs of its students today and in the future,” said Robert Turner, board of trustees chair. “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.”  

Rob Bohrer, vice president for academic and student affairs and dean of the college, has been named acting president and will report directly to Turner.   

“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” Turner said.
