Biographical Note

The 2012 website for the Elon University Office of the President states the following about President Leo Michael Lambert.

"Leo M. Lambert became Elon’s eighth president in January 1999. Very early in his tenure, his responsibilities included completing the Elon Vision strategic plan, including the construction of Rhodes Stadium and the opening of Belk Library. Today Dr. Lambert’s work focuses on an ambitious new strategic vision which aims to place Elon, with a national reputation for engaged learning, among the nation’s best small, selective, private universities. Substantial progress has been achieved toward realizing this goal. The academic climate of the campus has been strengthened by endowed programs such as the Kenan Honors Fellowships, the Baird Pulitzer Prize Lectures, and the Isabella Cannon Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Leadership. He has led efforts to more than double expenditures for library acquisitions, to increase faculty sabbatical opportunities, and to improve Elon’s position in Division I athletics by joining the Southern Conference. Dr. Lambert has been deeply committed to further strengthening Elon’s renowned program of experiential learning, evidenced by the opening of the Isabella Cannon Centre for International Studies and the Isabella Cannon International Studies Pavilion and by his taking national leadership in efforts such as Campus Compact and Project Pericles, which encourage students to become civically engaged in their communities. During his tenure, the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business has attained AACSB International accreditation, the School of Communications is accredited by ACEJMC, and Ernest A. Koury Sr. Business Center has been completed. The Elon University School of Law opened in Greensboro in fall 2006."
