The Kentucky School of Art (KSA) at Spalding University has named Terry Tyler its new president.
The board of trustees of the school announced the appointment of Tyler last week. In a press release from KSA, it noted that since the school’s launch four years ago, it has experienced rapid growth.
“To best serve the student population, current President Churchill Davenport sought to augment his experience in art and academics with those of a leader in business and finance,” the news release said.
Davenport will remain with KSA at Spalding in the role of Chancellor. His duties will be focused on student curriculum and staff development, the release noted. Upon announcing the appointment of Tyler, Davenport said that KSA had “found the ideal blend of skills and expertise with Terry, and I have found the perfect partner to work with me to fulfill KSA’s mission.”
Tyler is an entrepreneur with a background in business consulting and recently retired as a partner at Mercer, Inc., a global human capital consulting firm, according to the release.
