Maravene Loeschke, president of Mansfield University in Pennsylvania, was named today as the new president of Towson University in Maryland.
Loeschke will start Jan. 1 at Towson, replacing longtime president Robert Caret, who departed this year to lead the University of Massachusetts system.
Loeschke spent more than three decades at Towson, earning a bachelor’s in theatre and English and a master’s in education. After earning a doctorate in philosophy at the Union Institute in Cincinnati, she returned to Towson and climbed the faculty ranks. She served as dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communication from 1997 to 2002.
She left Towson that year to be provost of Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, where she earned notice by reorganizing the academic program into distinct schools and establishing learning assessments for those programs.
