St. Thomas University names Dr. Jeremy Moreland as new Provost
Dr. Jeremy L. Moreland has been selected as St. Thomas University’s (STU) new provost and chief academic officer.
Formerly provost and chief academic officer for University of the Rockies in Denver, Colorado, Moreland recently accepted the appointment and will be joining STU this month, leading the Catholic institution into a new year of student-driven success and academic accomplishments. 
“Dr. Moreland brings over 20 years of academic leadership experience to STU and possesses a thorough understanding of academic programs, instruction, and assessment, which are valuable skills we need to increase student enrollment and retention,” said David A. Armstrong, J.D., president of STU.
“I’m not only confident in his ability to evaluate the effectiveness of our current degree programs, but I’m also encouraged by his collaborative approach to managing the unique needs of groups ranging from our Board of Trustees to our diverse student body,” Armstrong said.
A champion for both classroom and online learning, Moreland’s prior roles have included academic dean, director of Institutional Assessment and Planning, and faculty member. He has been instrumental in building programs and innovative processes to grow research for faculty and students alike.
“As STU’s provost, my priorities will include effectively leveraging technology for teaching and learning, while also fostering research opportunities for faculty and students,” he said. “With support from President Armstrong and his esteemed STU leadership team, I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running in my new position and strengthening opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students alike. I am eager to partner with colleagues across campus and I am optimistic in our ability to bolster academic excellence and spearhead enrollment growth within the next year,” he said.
Moreland earned a Ph.D. in general experimental psychology from Texas Christian University, a master of science from Texas Christian University, and a bachelor of arts from Stephen F. Austin State University.
