Walter E. Massey Named President;
 Elissa Tenny  Appointed to Newly Created Provost Position
 


Chicago - Cary McMillan, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago  (SAIC), today announces new leadership at SAIC, including the appointment of prominent figures from the world of higher education.
