AUAF is pleased to announce the return of David Sedney as the Acting President of AUAF. The University would also like to especially thank current Interim President Andrew Starcher, as he resumes the role of Acting Provost and Senior Vice President as of August 21. Dr Starcher will be working remotely from Switzerland in the Fall 2019 semester. Dr. Starcher has played a critical leadership role throughout this summer transition period and AUAF is grateful that he will continue to play an active role with the University.
Mr. Sedney is well known to the AUAF community as an ardent, long-time supporter of the University. He is eagerly looking forward to welcoming new and returning AUAF students as classes start for the 2019-2020 academic year. Mr. Sedney will serve in the Acting President capacity while AUAF’s Board of Trustees conducts a search for a follow-on Acting President. At the same time, the Board is also conducting a search for a full time President. Mr. Sedney will also continue in his role as the Executive Chairman of AUAF, a position that he will retain after a new Acting President is named. As you see Mr. Sedney walking on campus this fall, please introduce yourself. He warmly welcomes the opportunity to get to know every member of the AUAF family.
