Chad Lochmiller, an associate professor and Educational Leadership and Policy Studies department chair, has been named to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education by Governor Eric Holcomb.
“I’m grateful to Governor Holcomb for appointing me to the Commission and am truly excited to serve as a member of the Indiana Commission for Higher Education alongside Commissioner Lowery and the other members,” Lochmiller said. “As a first-generation college student, I personally understand the challenges that a postsecondary education presents to so many of our students. I applied to ensure our state’s education system creates meaningful learning experiences that will propel our graduates from the classroom to the workplace with the knowledge and skills to be successful.”
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education plans, coordinates, and defines Indiana’s postsecondary education system to align higher learning with the needs of students and the state. The Commission also administers Indiana’s financial aid programs, including the 21st Century Scholars early college promise scholarship. Commission members include one faculty member, one student member, a representative from each of the state’s nine congressional districts, and three at-large members.
Lochmiller’s term will run through June 30, 2025.
