Bradley University's new President is a respected legal scholar, attorney, and graduate of the Peoria school. Gary Roberts is currently Dean Emeritus and a law school professor at Indiana University. He is an expert on anti trust and sports law.
Bradley Trustees Chair Dout Stewart says Roberts is a forward thinking, innovative, and proven leader. Roberts replaces Joanne Glasser, who retired earlier this year.
Roberts will take over January first from interim President Stan Liberty.
Roberts said he is honored, excited and humbled to be the next President of such a wonderful and prestigious institution. “It is a challenging time for higher education, especially for mid-sized private institutions such as Bradley. I approach this job with total commitment, determination and enthusiasm."
