Lon Morris College Names Provost

July 27, 2011

JACKSONVILLE – Lon Morris College has named Loretta Gallegos, Ph.D., as its provost. Dr. Gallegos, no stranger to Lon Morris or the administrative leadership team, will serve as the provost in an effort to streamline administrative operations of the college.

“As a critical member of the College’s leadership team, Dr. Loretta Gallegos has consistently researched and embraced opportunities for creative academic programming,” said Lon Morris President Miles McCall, Ph.D. “She has a strong record of engaging students and enhancing their academic experience through practical and immediate application of what they learn in the classroom. She is also an accomplished builder of teams capable of extraordinary results.”

“First and foremost, I am an educator who is passionate about the role education plays in impacting our society. Here at Lon Morris College, our faculty and staff are about the business of transforming lives each and every time they go in to the classroom or assist with student services. There are some who might think the scope of responsibility for provost is too vast to truly be effective. Under normal circumstances I might agree. However, the Provost team consists of people of extreme integrity, intelligence, energy, and dedication to the College. Because they are great at what they do, the Office of the Provost can operate in efficiency and effectiveness,” said Gallegos.

Gallegos joined the college two years ago serving as Lon Morris’ Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. Prior to Lon Morris, Gallegos has over fifteen years of higher education administration experience. She has served in numerous senior-level positions at Santa Fe Community College in New Mexico, Pueblo Community College, in Colorado and Colorado State University. She received her doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and Human Resource Studies from Colorado State University.
