ALLEGANY, N.Y. (AP) - Dennis DePerro (deh-PEER’-oh), a dean at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, has been named president of St. Bonaventure University in western New York.

The Franciscan college in Allegany, 60 miles south of Buffalo, announced Friday that DePerro will become the university’s 21st president in June.

He succeeds Interim President Andrew Roth, who took in August when Sister Margaret Carney retired after 12 years as president.

The 57-year-old DePerro is dean of the Purcell School of Professional Studies at Le Moyne. The Buffalo native arrived at Le Moyne in 1995 and was vice president for enrollment management at the Jesuit college for 18 years before becoming the first dean of what is now known as Purcell School.

A graduate of Canisius College in Buffalo, DePerro also holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania.
