(WOUB) - For two years, Gregory Sojka has been the INTERIM president of The University of Rio Grande.

Effective immediately, Sojka has the job without "interim" in the title.

The announcement was made yesterday by Steven Chapman, chairman of the board...who said Sojka has "performed admirably over the past two years" and proven his abilities.

Chapman said the same about Bobbie Hatfield and Barry Thompson.

They, too, have been given permanent appointments -- Hatfield as Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and Thompson as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

In addition, Paul Harrison has just been appointed Chief Operations Officer.
