Frostburg State’s new president pledging improvements

FROSTBURG — Frostburg State University’s new president is pledging improvements as the new school year begins.

Ronald Nowaczyk is speaking at the school’s fall convocation Thursday afternoon. Classes began Monday.

The university says in a statement that his topics include a response to a June warning from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education that Frostburg State was out of compliance with accreditation standards on institutional assessment and general education.

The university’ statement says Nowaczyk will talk about meeting the commission’s expectations and enhancing communication.

He’s also discussing plans for residence-hall improvements.

Nowaczyk joined the university in May. He previously served as vice president of academic affairs at Clarion University in northwestern Pennsylvania.
