Dr. Don Green steps down as president of Point Park

PITTSBURGH, PA – Dr. Don Green, President of Point Park University, since July 2021, has advised its Board of Trustees that he is resigning for private, personal and family reasons.

“Of course, we support his decision and wish Don the very best,” said Joe Greco, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “The board thanks Don for his boundless energy toward advancing the mission of the University and, in particular, his service to students during his time here.”

Dr. Green took over as president of Point Park in July 2021, following the retirement of Dr. Paul Hennigan.

According to University By-Laws, Dr. Michael Soto, Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs, will assume the responsibilities of the presidency until further notice. Members of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees are reviewing options for presidential succession and will be meeting with leaders of the various campus constituencies to discuss these options.

“As we work through this unexpected transition, I have full confidence that our entire leadership team, faculty and staff will remain focused on the excellent work they do in delivering on the mission of providing an outstanding higher education to our students,” Greco said.
