Dear Faculty and Staff,
I am delighted to share that, after a thorough search process that included open forums with candidates from across the nation, Lisa McIntyre has been selected as UNT’s new vice provost for student success. Her appointment begins June 5.
As vice provost for student success, Dr. McIntyre will lead our university’s strategic efforts to support students throughout their academic journey and prepare them for career success. She will oversee efforts such as academic advising, the UNT Learning Center, summer bridge programs and other strategic retention initiatives, academic integrity, the Student Perceptions of Teaching (SPOT) program and more. She also will manage the review process for UNT’s many centers and institutes, facilitate professional development programs for academic department chairs and work directly with academic leaders in UNT’s 14 colleges and schools to coordinate curriculum, enrollment and student success initiatives.
Dr. McIntyre brings more than 16 years of experience as an administrator and professor at Arizona State University, most recently serving as assistant vice provost for student success innovations. She has built her career on engaging partners across departments and divisions to implement data-informed strategies that improve outcomes for all students. Learn more about Dr. McIntyre.
I want to thank the hiring committee for their dedication to this important endeavor. I also want to express my deepest gratitude to Lisa Maxwell, who has worked tirelessly as interim vice provost to ensure the continued advancement of the Student Success office throughout this transition.
Dr. McIntyre is passionate about building a responsive, student-centered culture — a philosophy that informs everything we do here at UNT and fuels our mission to be a national leader in student success. I know that her innovative and caring approach will have far-reaching benefits not only for our students, but also for our faculty, staff and university community.
