Allen Clark, the assistant vice president for the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, has been named UNT's vice provost for academic resources.
Clark replaces Donna Asher who was named associate vice chancellor for business services for the UNT System and will head the newly established UNT System Business Service Center.
"Allen Clark brings a deep background in budget management and data analysis to this position, which will be critical in his new role," says Warren Burggren, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "His 11 years of experience studying student graduation and retention patterns will be a great asset and his analytical skills will help provide new opportunities to review our operations and resource management in the context of improving our business practices."
Clark joined the UNT staff in 2000 as a senior research analyst in the Office of Institutional Research. He was promoted to associate director in 2003 and director of Institutional Research in 2005. In addition, he has served in multiple capacities for the Texas Association for Institutional Research, including president-elect, president and past-president.
A native of Hobbs, N.M., Clark received his bachelor of science degree in industrial engineering from New Mexico State University. Clark earned his master of science in mathematics from Texas Woman's University and his doctorate in higher education at UNT. Prior to joining UNT, Clark worked as a manufacturing manager for Texas Instruments.
