May 19, 2014 - Dr. Niles Reddick has been named vice provost for the University of Memphis Lambuth Campus. Dr. M. David Rudd, U of M president, said the appointment becomes effective July 1.

“I have great confidence in Dr. Reddick’s ability to implement our strategic vision at Lambuth, strengthen our connections to the Jackson community and help us grow enrollment so we can educate even more students in West Tennessee,” said Rudd. “The success of our Lambuth campus is critical to the future of the University of Memphis, and West Tennessee in general.”

Reddick has served as vice president for academic affairs at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Ga., since 2007. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Valdosta State University, a master’s in psychology from the University of West Georgia and a doctorate in humanities from Florida State University. He has 20 years of experience in higher education teaching and administration, including serving as dean of Humanities and Social Sciences at Motlow State Community College in Lynchburg, Tenn. 

Reddick will succeed Dr. Dan Lattimore, who has led the Lambuth Campus since the University began offering classes there in August 2011. Lattimore will remain in his role as dean of the University College at the U of M, where he has worked since 1987.

“Dr. Lattimore was instrumental in getting this campus open with very short notice and guiding its early success,” said Rudd. “We are grateful for his tireless service over the last three years.”

The University of Memphis Lambuth Campus currently educates approximately 750 students at what was formerly the property of Lambuth University.
