UNO Names Wallace Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) announced earlier this month that Thomas D. Wallace has accepted the position of associate vice chancellor for Student Affairs. This is UNO's chief student affairs leadership position. Wallace begins at UNO June 15.
Wallace is assistant to the provost and associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Mississippi. He has been employed in a variety of positions at Ole Miss since 1990, including 10 years as vice chancellor for student life and six years as associate vice chancellor for student life. Prior to his employment at the University of Mississippi, Wallace was a public school teacher and administrator for 11 years.
In addition to his associate vice chancellor position at UNO he will hold a faculty position as an associate professor of educational administration and supervision in the College of Education.
“I’m looking forward to coming to UNO and to Omaha,” Wallace said. “I was impressed with the faculty, staff and students at UNO. The tremendous focus on students, particularly first-generation college students, and on community involvement made this position very attractive to me.”
Wallace has a demonstrated record of effectiveness as a student-centered academic leader. He places students' needs at the center of the learning environment and holds students to high standards of performance, said Terry Hynes, senior vice chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs.
“Our search committee and all of the people Dr. Wallace met with were very impressed with him,” Hynes said. “He’s a great match for UNO and for our metropolitan community.”
Wallace earned his doctorate in educational leadership, master of arts in education administration and bachelor of arts in elementary education all from the University of Mississippi.
