Carnegie Mellon University's Board of Trustees has appointed Farnam Jahanian, currently provost and chief academic officer, to serve as interim president of the university, effective July 1.

James E. Rohr, chairman of CMU's Board of Trustees, said Jahanian's appointment would help ensure a seamless transition.

“Dr. Jahanian will bring to this new role a deep understanding of the university’s strengths and opportunities, as well as strong, collaborative relationships with the deans, vice presidents and other campus leaders,” Rohr said. “He has had an enormous impact at CMU as provost, and I am confident he will provide Carnegie Mellon University with energetic and capable leadership, so we can continue to build on our extraordinary momentum.”
