Sandra Woodley

President's Office
MB Room 4218

Dr. Woodley began her tenure as the President of UTPB on July 1, 2017. She brings a unique perspective to the presidency as her journey is similar to that of many students at UTPB. She married soon after graduating high school, completing her education while also working full-time and raising her children. It would take a decade for her to become the first person in her family to earn a university degree. Beyond her strong experience in higher education leadership, she brings great insight and understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing students.

Prior to becoming president, Dr. Woodley served as the chief executive officer for the University of Louisiana System where she led one of the nation's largest higher education system, which serves 90,000 students at nine universities. She worked with the state's governor and legislature, the system's Board of Regents, as well as campus presidents and members of the public on matters of higher education policy.
