According to The Pantagraph in Bloomington, Donahue said the board had long functioned as a team under McCuskey. He said he hopes to continue that kind of partnership.
Donahue is a 1982 graduate of Illinois State. He has been a member of the board for three years.
Donahue lives in Orland Park and is deputy executive director of external relations at Pace.
Illinois State's eight-seat board has two vacant positions. University leaders say they hope Gov. Pat Quinn appoints replacements soon.
