OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - The Miami University Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to appoint the next president of the western Ohio college following a nine-month search.

Dr. Gregory Crawford joins Miami from the University of Notre Dame, where he previously served as vice president and associate provost in addition to teaching physics.

The 50-year-old was raised in Elyria and received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees from Kent State University.

Crawford is taking the job at Miami because he says the school’s mission and core values really resonated with him. He called Miami a “gem of a university” while crediting the school for helping students obtain “research, scholarship and performance experiences.”

Crawford will assume office on July 1 following the retirement of outgoing President David Hodge.
