(Oct. 19, 2018) -- UTSA Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Kimberly Andrews Espy today announced that Lisa Montoya has been named vice provost for international initiatives effective November 1, 2018. Montoya has served as interim vice provost since April 1.
“International engagement is a critical component of both UTSA’s student success and research excellence destinations”, said Espy. “Dr. Montoya has done an exceptional job of leading this area during the transition and I am delighted she will continue to serve as our chief international officer connecting our students and faculty across the globe.”
As vice provost, Montoya oversees the Office of International Programs, which includes international partnerships, admissions/recruitment, education abroad, international scholar, and international teaching assistant training services, as well as institutes that engage with our communities to advance international perspectives. She has worked at UTSA since 2005 and over the years have served as the College of Business associate dean for undergraduate programs, for professional development, and for international initiatives.
Additionally, one vice provost position will be eliminated from Academic Affairs organizational structure, with Heather Shipley taking on added responsibility as Senior Vice Provost for the divisional activities geared to advance faculty success (faculty review, training/development, and awards), in addition to her responsibility for undergraduate academic support, classroom to career programs and University College.
“As a part of UTSA’s continuous improvement efforts to reach our goal of an exemplar institution, these changes will increase service efficiency, reduce administrative bureaucracy, and re-integrate faculty and academic support functions to advance Academic Affairs,” said Espy.
