Embry-Riddle Names Aviation Dean Dr. Tim Brady Interim Chancellor of the Daytona Beach Campus

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has announced the appointment of Dr. Tim Brady, currently Dean of the College of Aviation at the Daytona Beach Campus, as Interim Chancellor of the campus effective Aug. 15.

“Dr. Brady has been a catalyst for legitimizing aviation as an academic discipline as exemplified by his leadership in forging the nation’s first aviation Ph.D. program,” said Embry-Riddle Interim President Dr. John R. Watret. “We look forward to his continued contributions as leader of the Daytona Beach Campus.”

Dr. Brady saw active duty with the U.S. Air Force from 1958 to 1980 as a pilot and was twice decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross in addition to several air medals. Before joining Embry-Riddle, he was chairman of the aviation department at Central Missouri State University and dean of Institutional Advancement and External Programs at Parks College of St. Louis University.

Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Brady is the only person to serve as president of both the University Aviation Association and the Aviation Accreditation Board International and led Embry-Riddle in the development of the first Ph.D. in Aviation program in the United States. He has been called on to represent the national collegiate flight training community at crucial times in the evolution of training technologies, education pedagogy and regulatory practice. Through testimony to Congress, participation in FAA aviation rulemaking committees and outreach to colleagues, he has illuminated the issues surrounding the preparation of first officer aspirants for aviation careers.

“I am deeply honored to have been considered and selected for this role,” Dr. Brady said. “As Interim Chancellor of the Daytona Beach Campus, I look forward to working with faculty, staff and students to help the institution achieve its goals.”

Dr. Brady holds a Ph.D. in Education from St. Louis University, an M.S. in Management from Abilene Christian University and a B.S. in Social Science from Troy State University.
