Pending approval by The University of Toledo Board of Trustees, UT President Lloyd Jacobs announced May 19 a number of organizational structure changes among his senior leadership team.

“Universities change and grow as the needs of the constituencies they serve evolve,” Jacobs said. “The recent retirement of Bill Logie and the permanent appointment of William McMillen as provost provided two opportunities to look at the institution’s leadership more broadly to see how we can best meet our current priorities.”

Logie serves as vice president for human resources and campus safety.

Other position and/or title changes include the appointments of:

• David Dabney, formerly interim senior vice president for finance and administration, as chief financial officer and vice president for finance;

• Dr. Frank Calzonetti, formerly vice president for research and economic development, as vice president for government relations;

• Dr. James Trempe, formerly senior director of research administration, as vice president for research; and

• Dr. Dan Johnson, former UT president who recently completed his leadership of Zayed University in the United Arab Emirates, as director of global initiatives.

In addition, Dr. Kaye Patten Wallace’s title will change from vice president for student affairs to vice president for the student experience. Jacobs said Patten Wallace will be empowered to intervene and participate in decisions in every non-faculty point of contact where the institution interacts with students.

Chuck Lehnert’s title will change from vice president for facilities and construction to vice president for administration. A to-be-named associate vice president for facilities, construction and maintenance will report to Lehnert. Beginning July 1, campus safety and health and the UT Police Department will report to Lehnert.

In addition, business development, tech transfer and other UT incubation functions, and UT Innovation Enterprises support staff, will report to Mary Jo Waldock, associate vice president of innovation enterprises, who will report to Lehnert.

Jacobs noted that the placement of the Human Resources Department in the new organizational structure had not been finalized.
