University of Dayton President Eric Spina alerted the UD community of this news via email on Monday afternoon.

“It has been clear that President Emeritus Dan Curran feels a deep and profound affection for the University of Dayton and each member of our community,” Spina said.

“I ask you all to join me now in returning that deep affection with your thoughts and prayers for Dr. Dan and his family.”
