Tiffin University names new provost

Ohio's Tiffin University (TU) recently named Peter Holbrook as its provost.

Holbrook has considerable leadership experience, including serving as dean of the Cardinal Stritch University College of Business and Management and as president and CEO of the Cream City Foundation, both in Milwaukee.

“Peter brings extensive knowledge in developing and executing academic programs, particularly in terms of nontraditional delivery methods,” Tiffin University President Lillian Schumacher said. “It is imperative to TU’s long-term sustainability that we build new programs and evaluate our current offerings to enhance what we offer our students, and Dr. Holbrook brings this expertise.”

Holbrook has a doctorate in leadership studies, a master’s degree in management and a B.A. in business. He is also an accomplished researcher, published writer and speaker.

“It’s an exciting and challenging time to be in higher education,” he said. “I embrace the many complexities and opportunities it presents. The mission of TU is very compelling and the vision to equip a diverse student body with global and 21st century skills is critical to preparing a workforce and leaders for tomorrow.”

Holbrook added that Tiffin presents a unique opportunity to use his experience.

“For me, it is all about creating learning environments that promote value, access and opportunity as a means to transforming our communities,” he said.
