Description

Join us for an outstanding opportunity to lunch and learn with Devorah A. Lieberman, Ph.D. The first woman to serve as president of the University of La Verne.

Dr. Devorah Lieberman, the University of La Verne’s 18th and first female president, brings more than 30 years of higher education experience, scholarship, and leadership to the campus. Since taking office in 2011, she has contributed to the well-being of the university’s students, the scholarly activity of the faculty, and the vitality of the surrounding community, while also advocating for engagement, inclusivity, and respect among all.

Lieberman is dedicated to three values: educating and cultivating future leaders, promoting inclusivity and diversity, and leading by example with integrity.

Under her leadership, the University of La Verne launched the La Verne Experience (LVE), a curriculum that connects theory to practice, fosters community and civic engagement, and reinforces connections between students and faculty. Through the LVE, students develop personally and professionally by working with community partners such as homeless shelters, retirement communities, school districts, and community gardens.

Lieberman has promoted countless university-wide diversity and inclusivity initiatives, which include helping the university to become a model interfaith campus, a recognition that was awarded by President Obama. In 2014, she spoke at the White House on this topic.

Lieberman’s expertise includes intercultural communication and diversity issues in higher education. She has published and co-authoring dozens of books and articles relating to diversity, institutional transformation, and issues affecting higher education.

Lieberman earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Humboldt State University (’75), a master’s degree in Intercultural Communication from San Diego State University (’77), and a Ph.D. in Intercultural Communication and Gerontology from the University of Florida (’84). She and her husband Roger Auerbach have two daughters, Alicea and Emery.
