Martha King named director of administration and assistant provost for Health Sciences Division at Loyola

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Martha King has been named the first director of administration and assistant provost for the Loyola University Chicago Health Sciences Division. 

In her new role, King is responsible for faculty recruitment for Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing and Health Research Graduate School. She also is tasked with the development, coordination and implementation of new faculty procedures as well as facilitation of the Faculty Development Review Committee on Rank and Tenure.

“Advancing a faculty member through promotion and tenure is of equal importance to identifying and recruiting the most qualified candidates. In bringing together these responsibilities into one administrative office, we will more efficiently recruit and retain the best of the best,” said Richard L. Gamelli, MD, FACS, senior vice president and provost of Health Sciences at Loyola. “Martha’s track record in these areas makes her the ideal person to establish this office.”

Before joining Loyola, King managed Saint Louis University’s Office of Faculty Affairs, where she provided training and guidance to faculty and academic units on university policies and procedures. She also taught courses in philosophy of law and German at the university.

King earned her master’s degree in philosophy from Saint Louis University and is currently a PhD candidate.
