Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg Will Be the Eleventh President of the University of Tampa

Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg, currently provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at Texas Christian University, has been named the next president of the University of Tampa. She will take office on June 1.

The University of Tampa enrolls just over 9,600 undergraduate students and nearly 1,000 graduate students, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 59 percent of the undergraduate student body.

“UT’s upward trajectory and transformation over the past three decades is an impressive and exciting story, and today the university is well-positioned to become an elite, world-renowned university,” Dr. Dahlberg said. “The prospect of building an even stronger and more impactful UT is a challenge that I embrace, and I look forward to working with the UT community – the students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and partners – in ushering UT into its next era of greatness.”

In addition to being TCU’s chief academic officer, Dr. Dahlberg is also a professor of both computer science and engineering. She has more than 20 years of experience in higher education, as a faculty member and an administrator, and is known especially as an advocate for student success, innovative academic programs, and inclusivity initiatives.

Prior to joining TCU in 2019, Dr. Dahlberg served as dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University in New York. Before her position at Syracuse, Dr. Dahlberg served as chief academic officer and dean of the Albert Nerken School of Engineering at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York, and associate dean of the College of Computing and Informatics at the University of North Carolina Charlotte.

Professor Dahlberg has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and earned both a master’s degree and a Ph.D. from North Carolina State University.
