Slippery Rock’s Vice President for Finance and Administration Charles Curry announced his resignation Monday.

Curry , whose resignation will be effective May 3, has worked for the University for 27 years, and has been in his current position since 1988.

Molly Mercer, current assistant vice president for finance, will serve as Interim Vice President for Finance and Administration until a new one is named.

“I’ve spent 25 years as the Vice President for Finance and Administration, during which time I’ve overseen more than $300 million in new construction, renovation, parking and paving projects. I’ve also provided vision and strategic financial leadership for the offices of Accounting, Facilities and Planning, Purchasing, Contracts, Human Resources and Budget. That’s a great deal of responsibility, making sure the University is in sound financial shape and is in compliance with all state and federal requirements. At some point you say to yourself, “it is time to do something else.’ I think that time has come,” Curry said in a Slippery Rock University press release.

A national search for the next vice president for finance and administration will begin immediately.

A more detailed story will be in next Friday’s edition of The Rocket on April 26, featuring interviews from President Cheryl Norton and Charles Curry.
