(CINCINNATI) --  The Board of Trustees of the College of Mount St. Joseph and its sponsors, the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, announce the appointment of Anthony Joseph Aretz, Ph.D., as the sixth president of the College of Mount St. Joseph.

Dr. Aretz, who is academic vice president of Christian Brothers University in Memphis, will succeed Sister Francis Marie Thrailkill, Ed.D., on July 1, 2008. Sister Francis Marie is retiring after 20 years as the fifth president of the Mount.

"I am honored and humbled by the Mount community's confidence in my leadership as their next president. I look forward to working with the Sisters of Charity and the Mount's faculty, staff, students, and alumni as we build on the solid foundation established during Sister Francis Marie's tenure," said Dr. Aretz.

Dr. Aretz, a native of Lafayette, IN, brings extensive experience in academic leadership, teaching and research to his role as president-elect of the College of Mount St. Joseph. As the academic vice president at Christian Brothers University since 2004, he oversaw development of the strategic plan and implemented new academic programs including graduate programs in executive leadership, Catholic studies and an online program in engineering management as well as baccalaureate degree programs in biomedical sciences and engineering management. He oversaw the integration of enrollment management functions for adult and graduate programs, and implemented a new general education program at the university.

Dr. Aretz also has a 20-year career as a faculty member for the USAF Academy in Colorado where he taught psychology, engineering psychology, leadership, research, statistics and philosophy, earning outstanding teaching awards in 1992 and 1986. He was also the founding director of the Scholars Program and director of Academic Strategic Planning, and is recognized nationally for his work in educational assessment and engineering psychology. 

Dr. Aretz received a Ph.D. in engineering psychology from the University of Illinois (1990), a Master of Arts in Human Factors from Wright State University, OH (1982), and a Bachelor of Science in Human Factors from the United States Air Force Academy, CO (1980). He was also a fellow of the American Council of Education 2001-2002 where he served as a member of the Regis University senior leadership team.

Dr. Aretz and his wife, Terry, are the parents of three sons: Tommy, a 2nd Lt in the USAF; David and Michael.

A Presidential Search Committee was appointed by the Mount's Board of Trustees in May 2007 that included 12 members representing key constituencies of the College. 

The College of Mount St. Joseph is an undergraduate and graduate Catholic college of 2,300 students located in Cincinnati, Ohio, that provides an interdisciplinary liberal arts and professional curriculum emphasizing values, service and social responsibility.
