About Dr. Loma Meyer
Loma Meyer's contributions to higher education in the church and the wider academy are singular and extraordinary. Educated at the University of Minnesota and Oklahoma State University, with doctorates from both the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the University of Minnesota, she was certified for the church's teaching ministry by colloquy. Her arrival at Concordia Saint Paul in 1967 marked the beginning of a career in higher education as an award-winning professor, director of instruction, dean of the faculty, vice president for academic affairs, and executive vice president?holding several of these positions simultaneously.
In the higher education of the church, Dr. Meyer has been among the most noteworthy leaders and administrators of her time, perpetually serving on task forces, local and national boards, and commissions. The broader academic community has long sought her expertise as well; and she has been active in various capacities for the Minnesota State Board of Education, the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Regarded by her students and colleagues with admiration, profound respect, and affection, the years of her tenure at Concordia are often referred to simply as "the Loma Meyer era."
