An administrator who had been poised to become La Salle University's next president has withdrawn his candidacy after talks with the school's board of trustees broke down.
Gregory Dell'Omo, president of Robert Morris University, near Pittsburgh, was to take the top job at La Salle. But that changed Thursday afternoon, according to a Robert Morris statement.
"I wish La Salle University the very best as their search continues," Dell'Omo said in a news release. "It was gratifying to know that the progress that's been made here at RMU caught the attention of this institution and led them to invite me into their recruitment process. At this point, I'm glad to get back to work with my great team at RMU to take us to the next level."
