State Insurance Commissioner Therese M. Vaughan has resigned effective at the end of the year and will join the faculty at Drake University, the school announced Friday.
Vaughan has been named the Robb B. Kelley distinguished professor of insurance and actuarial science, said Charlie Edwards, dean of Drake’s College of Business and Public Administration.
Vaughan was chairwoman of the insurance department at Drake before being named Iowa’s insurance commissioner in 1994. She is the longest-serving commissioner in Iowa history. Vaughan will be succeeded by her deputy, Susan E. Voss.
