Executive Assistant Dean Named To University Post

December 16, 2009

Mary Lou Lackey, the executive assistant dean for administrative affairs at McGeorge, will move to the Stockton campus the first of the year to serve as vice president and secretary to the University of the Pacific's Board of Regents.

Lackey, who has overseen all non-academic operations at McGeorge since 2003, will be responsible for supervising the university's offices of information technology, institutional planning, legal counsel and President Dr. Pamela A Eibeck's office.

"Mary Lou joined our law school just a year after I began my deanship," said McGeorge Dean Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker. "She has made remarkable contributions to the school during her time here - significantly improving the professionalism of our administrative team and its operations, guiding the development of a campus master plan and overseeing the significant physical plant renovations across campus, raising the visibility of the law school in the local community, and serving as a strategic partner to me on a wide range of issues and challenges."

Lackey came to McGeorge after serving as corporate vice president at Motorola. She holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Florida and a master's degree in public administration from Florida Atlantic University. She is a member of the International Women's Forum and past board member of the Women's Forum West.

"This is an exciting time at Pacific, and I look forward to working with the new president and staff, students and faculty on the Stockton and San Francisco campuses in helping direct the university's future," Lackey said. I am truly honored that I was selected out of all the immensely qualified and talented people who work at Pacific."

Pacific's Stockton campus is home to seven of the university's schools. McGeorge is based in Sacramento, and the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is in San Francisco.
