Nazareth College’s Board of Trustees has named Daan Braveman, former dean of Syracuse University College of Law, as the college’s ninth president.
Braveman will succeed Robert A. Miller who has served as Nazareth’s president since 1998. He will take office on July 1.
“We are incredibly pleased that Daan Braveman is joining Nazareth,” said Brian E. Hickey, chairman of the Nazareth board of trustees. “Daan’s passion for experiential learning, his deep respect for the liberal arts and his dedication to excellence parallel Nazareth’s commitment to teaching, off-campus learning and an inclusive community.”
Braveman, 57, is a native of Rochester. He graduated from Brighton High School in 1965 and the University of Rochester in 1969. He received his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972. Braveman is the author of many books and articles on issues dealing with constitutional law, civil rights, child poverty and legal education.
Miller and his wife Jan plan to relocate to Winter Park, Fla., while maintaining a second residence in Rochester. He intends to spend his retirement serving as a higher-education consultant and adviser to various for-profit and not-for-profit concerns.
