“The Sandor Teszler Library is an essential partner in the academic success of Wofford’s students and faculty, and we look forward to having Lisa’s leadership as the library positions itself as an academic commons to facilitate learning and collaboration,” says Dr. Mike Sosulski, Wofford’s provost. “Lisa’s strong commitment to student success, her distinguished record of leadership and her vision of the transformative power an academic commons can play in the life of a liberal arts college make her an excellent fit for Wofford.”
Roberts earned a master of library and information science degree at the University of Texas at Austin. She earned a bachelor of arts in economics, religion and philosophy at Principia College. She is a member of the American Library Association (ALA) and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).
“Wofford’s core values align beautifully with my personal values,” Roberts says. “I’m excited by the vision outlined in the strategic plan and the central role the library will play during this time of growth and innovation. I’m excited to join a strong team within the library, and look forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and administration to develop programming in support of student learning.”
During her time at Principia, she built a comprehensive across-the-curriculum information literacy instruction program and was involved with revising the college’s general education curriculum and the development of the First Year Experience Program. She also served on committees responsible for the reaffirmation of accreditation and a new model for academic program review and the assessment of student learning.
Wofford’s Sandor Teszler Library is experiencing major transition and growth, as the 43,000-square-foot building receives a top-to-bottom renovation and joins a statewide-shared library service platform in the summer of 2020.
