BREAKING: Pike County Sheriff issues alert about criminal gang, heroin

Wright State’s executive vice president resigns


Wright State University’s executive vice president of planning is resigning, the Dayton Daily News has learned.

Robert Sweeney’s last day as part of the WSU administration will be May 20, said spokesman Seth Bauguess. Sweeney also serves as secretary to the board of trustees.

Sweeney will return to a finance faculty position in the Raj Soin College of Business. He will begin teaching full-time again either this summer or in the fall, Bauguess said.

Sweeney’s resignation comes just days after this news organization learned that provost Tom Sudkamp and associate provost Steven Berberich are looking to leave the university. The two leaders were named as finalists for jobs at two different universities in Arkansas.

Robert Fyffe, Wright State’s vice president of research and graduate school dean, also recently announced he would resign, effective Sept. 30.

Fyffe’s resignation came less than two weeks after an audit of WSU’s research funding was released by the board of trustees.

The leadership changes come as the school is dealing with a financial crisis that requires the administration to cut $25 million from next year’s budget to balance the books.

Wright State trustees have said they expected administrators to resign as the university begins the transition of bringing its next president into office.
