Curtis will be the second Indiana State graduate and the first woman to serve as ISU president.

The search for a new president at Indiana State University is almost over. A search committee is recommending the board of trustees approve Deborah J. Curtis as the university’s 12th president during a special meeting next week.

ISU Board of Trustees Chair David Campbell led the search committee and says in a statement it was a difficult decision. Indiana State’s provost Michael Licari was the other finalist.

“Dr. Curtis brings a breadth of experience from her roles at Central Missouri and Illinois State, and I am confident she will build upon the tremendous success that has been achieved in the past 10 years and advance Indiana State to even greater heights,” Campbell said in the statement.

Curtis will be the second Indiana State graduate and the first woman to serve as ISU president.

“I discovered how much I enjoyed working with the college students who did their field experiences at the lab school and decided to earn my Ph.D. Obtaining my doctorate from Indiana State was the launching pad for my entire career in higher education,” Curtis said in a statement.

Curtis is expected to begin in January. She’ll succeed Daniel J. Bradley, who is leaving ISU after nine and a half years.
