Towson University named a top at administrator at Eastern Michigan University as its new president.

Kim E. Schatzel formally succeeds Maravene Loeschke, who stepped away from the university late last year due to cancer and sadly passed away in June. In the interim, Timothy Chandler served as president. Schatzel is set to take over on Jan. 25. At that point, Chandler will step back to his prior role as university provost.

Schatzel is currently the interim president at Eastern Michigan University, which has about 23,000 undergraduate students. At EMU, she helped to reorganize the academic and student affairs departments, and developed programs focused on retention and bolstering graduate programs.

She was previously a professor and dean at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Before that, she was founding president of metals component manufacturer ICM/Krebsoge, and was a cofounder of DBT Ventures, which partnered with AOL.

Schatzel was identified by a search committee, and was formally appointed by the University System of Maryland’s Board of Regents.
