Bradberry Appointed Interim President

J. Chris Bradberry, Pharm.D., dean of the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, has been serving as interim president of Creighton University since the retirement of Timothy R. Lannon, S.J., on Jan. 20. He will serve in the interim role until Daniel Hendrickson, S.J., joins the University on July 1 as the 25th president of Creighton University.

Serving in a transitional leadership role is not new to Bradberry. He served as the interim vice president for academic affairs for eight months in 2013, prior to Edward O’Connor, Ph.D., joining Creighton as the University’s first provost.

“My main priority is to help develop a smooth passage for Fr. Hendrickson,” Bradberry said. “We are engaged in an ongoing orientation process to help make his transition as seamless as possible.”

Bradberry earned his baccalaureate in pharmacy and master’s degree in hospital pharmacy from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. He completed his doctor of pharmacy degree at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, Memphis, and his residency in pharmacy at the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston.

Bradberry has been at Creighton since 2003, when he was appointed dean.
