By: Allen University

Allen University welcomes Dr. Lisa Long, as the new Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs. Most recently, she served as acting president at Talladega
College in Alabama, as well as its chief academic officer. Dr. Long is a proven leader with
a distinguished educational career and background.
In addition to her academic leadership, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in
human resources, strategic planning, marketing, and budget development. Her involvement and
expertise in accreditation led to her election to the Commission/Board of Trustees of the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges.
Dr. Long’s accomplishments at Talladega included the launch of its first graduate program an
M.A. in History, recruiting and maintaining a strong faculty, and cultivation of the largest single
donation ever received of $2.5 million. Her rise at the institution was progressive, having
successful posts as department chair, dean, provost, and ultimately acting president.
“Dr. Long’s experience, talent, collaborative style of engaging, active listening, and abiding
respect for shared governance made her the perfect addition to the leadership team at Allen,”
said President Ernest McNealey.
