YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State University’s provost and vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Robert K. Herbert, drowned while vacationing in Costa Rica.

Herbert became YSU’s provost in July 2005.

“We are all stunned by this tragic news,” said YSU President David C. Sweet. “As a member of the YSU family, a colleague and a friend, Bob will be missed by us all. Our deepesy sympathies are with Bob’s wife and family.”

Further details about the death were not available, the university said Saturday in a statement; information on funeral arrangements also was not known.

Herbert’s wife is Dr. Barbara Nykiel-Herbert, a faculty member in YSU’s English department. They have two sons and a daughter.
