Dominican University has named Jeffrey Breese, PhD, as provost and vice president for academic affairs, effective July 1, 2015. A native of Ohio, Breese comes to the university from Manchester University in Indiana, where he was vice president for academic affairs and professor of sociology. Previously he was dean and interim vice president for academic affairs at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, where his academic portfolio included undergraduate and graduate programs in the health sciences. He served as an associate dean at Marymount University in Virginia, and was the department chair and faculty member at St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, IN, for nine years.

Breese received his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Youngstown State University; his master’s in sociology from Ohio University; and his doctorate in sociology from the University of Akron.

“The breadth of Dr. Breese’s academic administrative experience as well as his practical management style make him a strong fit as Dominican’s provost,” President Donna Carroll says. “His collaborative disposition resonates with our Catholic Dominican ethos and commitment to shared governance. At the same time, his past efforts developing graduate professional programs address a current leadership priority.”
