Wallace Loh named president of University of Maryland

The Washington Post
August 18, 2010
Wallace D. Loh, provost at the University of Iowa, has been appointed president of the University of Maryland, university officials said Monday night.

Loh will take the lead of Maryland's flagship public university Nov. 1, replacing C.D. (Dan) Mote, who is retiring after 12 years, according to an e-mail sent to members of the university community.

"Dr. Loh is the right person to lead our flagship university to its next level of greatness," said Clifford Kendall, chair of the governing board of the state university system, in a prepared statement dated Tuesday. "His wealth of experience and achievements in higher education demonstrate his strong commitment to excellence in teaching, research, and service as well as his exceptional ability to move institutions forward."

Loh has more than three decades of higher education experience. As second in command at the University of Iowa since 2008, he has overseen personnel and budgets for the state university's 11 colleges. The University of Iowa has 30,000 students and a $2.6 billion budget.

At College Park, Loh will join an institution that has ascended to the highest rank of public universities. Once known as a "safety school," U-Md. rose in stature under Mote and now ranks among the top 20 public universities in the annual U.S. News Best Colleges rankings
