Dunn begins presidency at Youngstown State

Former Murray State president Randy Dunn begins his new position at Youngstown State University today.

Dunn is the eighth president of Youngstown State after being elected by the YSU Board of Trustees in May. Dunn follows former YSU president Cynthia Anderson who retired on June 30.

Dunn and his wife, Ronda moved to Youngstown, Ohio into the Pollock House last week after making the nine-hour drive from Murray.

Anderson owned a home and did not live in the Pollock House, which is reserved for the president of YSU. Dunn is the first to live in the house since its $4.5 million renovations.

In his first week in office, Dunn is scheduled to meet with media sources, visit summer classes and meet with YSU vice presidents.

Dunn served as Murray State president for six years.

Tim Miller, interim president for Murray State, has already started to fulfill duties as interim, but officially the assumes title today.
