Dr. Paula Allen-Meares served from 2009-2015 as Chancellor of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and Vice President of the University of Illinois. She is currently the John Corbally Presidential Professor Emerita. She holds certificates in management from the University of Michigan and Harvard University, an Executive Education certificate from the Women’s Director of Development Program at Kellogg School of Management, and the Creating and Leading a Culture of Innovation Certificate from Northwestern University. She has held faculty appointments on both the Chicago and Urbana-Champaign campuses in the School of Public Health, College of Education and Schools of Social Work, and is Dean and Professor Emerita and the Norma Radin Collegiate Professor at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Allen-Meares is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), the Royal Society of Medicine, past Trustee of the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), and current Fellow at NYAM. She was appointed Chair of Section X of the National Academy of Medicine in 2009 and then co-chaired Section X for another two years. She served on the NAM Sarnat Prize Committee, Awards Committee, and the Consensus Committee on Improving Health outcomes among Children with Disabilities. Dr. Allen-Meares also serves on the Chicago Civic Consulting Alliance Board, the American Council on Education’s Commission on Inclusion, and recently served on the Executive Committee for the Coalition for Urban Serving Universities. Furthermore, for almost a decade, she served as a Trustee for the WT Grant Foundation in New York. She has also been invited to participate in conferences at the White House regarding student success and affordability in higher education, and calls on mental health services and the budget.

At the University of Michigan, Dr. Allen-Meares chaired the University Health Sciences Council, and was a founding Dean of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, the National Center for Institutional Diversity, and The University of Michigan Detroit Center. She was principal investigator (PI) of the Global Program on Youth, supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, co-PI of the National Institute of Mental Health’s Research Center on Poverty, Risk and Mental Health and co-PI on an RO1 of the National Institute of Mental Health’s Pathways for Youth, Risk and Resilience. She was also PI of the Skillman Good Neighborhoods Grant at the University of Michigan. At the University of Illinois at Chicago, she served as PI of the Health Sciences Learning Exchange grant. Dr. Allen-Meares was the original PI and is currently a Co-I on the NIH Bridges to Baccalaureate grant, and is a Co-I on Investigator Development Core of the Chicago Center for Health Equity Research grant.

Dr. Allen-Meares led the fundraising campaign efforts for UIC’s Brilliant Futures Campaign, which raised $678 million, surpassing the campaign’s $650 million goal and representing the most ever raised by UIC. This is the third major fundraising campaign Dr. Allen-Meares has led; while at the University of Michigan, she exceeded two other previous school-led campaigns in fundraising.

During her tenure at the University of Michigan and now at UIC, Dr. Allen-Meares established research and educational partnerships with the UAW, Ford, GM, Baxter International, Argonne National Laboratories, governmental and non-governmental agencies, and many international organizations. She has worked with a number of labor unions, including the
UAW, in her many academic roles. At present, there are 23 unions represented on the UIC campus and in the hospital.

As Chancellor of UIC, Dr. Allen-Meares worked to transform the campus into a model for how urban universities should champion and effectuate sustainable public policy and translate research, discoveries and innovations that enhance quality of life at the local, national, and global levels. In doing so, she has redefined for future generations the role of land-grant colleges and universities. The enhanced intellectual heft and financial resources garnered by UIC under the governance of Dr. Allen-Meares have furthered the university’s reputation for evidence-based policy solutions to urban challenges. Today the campus is a nationally and internationally recognized center—for programs, policies, research, and discourse that address complex and intermeshing social and global concerns. Included among these are first-generation education and retention success, diversity-such as the Cluster Hire Initiative and Interdisciplinary Research, access to health care, food distribution, energy sustainability, and the development of technology and innovation. The UIC six year graduation rate also improved under her tenure. Over 100 classrooms and buildings were renovated and completed, such as Miles Square Health Center.

Dr. Allen-Meares continues to serve on a number of editorial boards and has published with some of the leading presses. She has over 170 articles, chapters, several books, and commentaries including the recently released Social Work Services in Schools (7th ed.) New York: Pearson, to be translated into Chinese. Her scholarly work has been translated in other
languages and studied around the globe.
