“Dan and his family ask for continued prayers of gratitude and condolence for the donor and the donor’s family. And Dan is looking forward to coming back to campus in the not-too-distant future to say thank you in person,” the school’s statement said.
Curran, whose tenure expanded not only the school’s physical footprint but also his persona as a crowd-surfing bon vivant with a sharp understanding of marketing and academia, is one of three living UD presidents. Also living are Bro. Ray Fitz, a vowed Marianist and Curran’s predecessor, and incumbent Eric Spina, who assumed the school’s presidency in summer 2016 when Curran stepped down.
UD continues to encourage well-wishers to email Curran at President18@udayton.edu.
