Thomas Scheye is the Distinguished Service Professor at Loyola College in Maryland, a position especially created for him by the board of trustees on the occasion of his retirement as provost.
Tom has spent 30 years at Loyola College, 20 of them as academic vice-president and provost, including a term as interim president. During his tenure, Loyola was transformed from an all-male commuter college with approximately 1,000 students to the regional and residential comprehensive university it is today, with more than 6,000 students enrolled. As provost, Tom was charged with principal responsibility for strategic planning and enrollment management among other areas. As a result of a series of strategic plans, the college grew in both size and complexity, launching new academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate level, including two doctoral programs. It received specialized accreditation in both business and engineering and was granted a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Loyola has become a highly competitive and selective institution; last year there were more than 7,000 applications for the freshman class, and a recent graduate was named a Rhodes Scholar.
Tom has served as theatre critic for the Baltimore News-American and as both host and writer for a 60-program series on English literature for the Maryland Public Broadcasting System. His publications include articles on Shakespeare and modern drama as well as higher education.
Acting as a consultant for more than 15 years, Tom has worked with more than 70 clients including public and private colleges and universities as well as non-profit organizations. In his work, he specializes in strategic planning and institutional advancement as well as board development and presidential assessment. .
Tom received his B.A in English from Georgetown University, his M.A. from Yale University and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
