SMU names new provost and vice president for academic affair

Postby AfricanMustang » Mon Dec 09, 2019 12:18 pm

DALLAS (SMU) – Elizabeth Loboa will join SMU as provost and vice president for academic affairs on July 6, 2020.

As chief academic officer for the University, she will be responsible for the overall quality of teaching, scholarship and research and all aspects of academic life, ranging from admissions and faculty development to supervision of SMU’s eight schools, library system, and international programs.

Loboa, a biomedical engineer, is currently vice chancellor for strategic partnerships and dean and Ketchum Professor of the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri. She brings to SMU a distinguished academic record and broad university leadership experience.

As one of the co-leaders, Loboa was instrumental in the largest capital research project ever undertaken at the University of Missouri – the $221 million NextGen Precision Health Institute. She worked to bring together the assets of five MU colleges – Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources, Arts & Science, Engineering, Medicine, and Veterinary Medicine – in partnership with the Truman VA Hospital, the MU Research Reactor, and MU Healthcare

Loboa joined the University of Missouri as dean of the College of Engineering in October 2015, where she oversees more than 140 faculty members and approximately 3,500 undergraduate and graduate students. While retaining her role as dean, she assumed the larger role of vice chancellor of strategic partnerships in 2018.

Loboa previously served as associate chair and professor of the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University, and as a professor of materials science and engineering at North Carolina State University

She received both her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and her master’s degree in biomechanical engineering from Stanford, and earned her bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from UC-Davis.

Loboa has been recognized for her work as an engineer, inventor, researcher and leader. She is a fellow in the National Academy of Inventors, the Biomedical Engineering Society and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. She earned the Insight into Diversity Giving Back Award, the Sigma Xi Faculty Research Award, the Ralph E. Power Junior Faculty Award and the UK-US Stem Cell Collaboration Development Award. Loboa also is the recipient of the University of California-Davis Distinguished Engineering Alumni Medal as well as the Stanford University Distinguished Alumni Scholar Award.

Currently, Loboa serves on the advisory boards of the Association of American Universities’ Strategy for Sexual Harassment and Gender Discrimination Advisory Board and the Columbia Business Times; the board of directors of the Heart of Missouri United Way and the Missouri Innovation Center; the executive council of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society, Inc.; and on the nominations committee for the American Institute for Medical and Biomedical Engineering, among others. She is a director of the Engineering Deans Council for the American Society for Engineering Education

Loboa is an editorial board member for Current Stem Cell Reports, Scientific Reports, Biomedical Materials, and Tissue Engineering.

She has a great educational background. She could be the next President of SMU based on credentials. I like that she has a STEM background.

Does anyone have any insight on how her academic & research work stacks up? I think SMU needs leadership that not only knows how to run a university but also knows how to increase the academic rigors and prestige in the classroom.

Interesting she started out at a community college.

The College of Engineering experienced a 50 percent increase in research awards from fiscal year 2018 to fiscal year 2019. The most recent freshman engineering class had an average 29.8 ACT score. The college received the American Society for Engineering Education’s bronze award for diversity.

More of her research work is here. It's interesting to note even after she became dean at Missouri, she remained an adjunct at NCSU.
