University of Pikeville Provost Lori Werth, Ph.D., will be the featured speaker for the Coleman College of Business Speakers and Leadership Series. The event, “Awaken the Greatness Within,” is set for Monday, Nov. 12, at 11 a.m. in Booth Auditorium.

As the university’s chief academic officer and a leader within the campus community, planning and implementing the institution’s academic priorities is central to Werth’s work. She collaborates with academic deans, department leaders, faculty and staff to strengthen the institution’s commitment to the quality of UPIKE’s undergraduate and graduate programs. Teams specialized in recruiting, retention and athletics are guided by Werth.
 
With an intense belief that students from all backgrounds can succeed, Werth’s goal is to provide the tools and support needed to ignite a lifelong passion for learning and growth. In her two years at UPIKE, she has been pivotal in launching the RN-BSN completion program that went fully online and other online degree programs as well as adding a band program and athletic opportunities.
 
Werth earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from the College of Idaho, her master’s degree in education from Oregon State University and her Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho.
 
The campus and the community are cordially invited to attend the Nov. 12 event. For more information, contact Brenda Maynard, associate professor of business, at (606) 218-5005 or brendamaynard@upike.edu.
