The first of two finalists for the vice president for student success, Dr. Charles Hueber, dean of students at Schreiner University in Kerrville, is scheduled to visit this college Tuesday.
He will give a presentation for students at 11:45 a.m. and an open forum for faculty, students and the community at 3:15 p.m. He will meet with faculty leadership at 1 p.m.
A pizza lunch and discussion will be after the session for students.
The other finalist, Dr. James Siegel, associate vice president of student development at Rockland Community College in New York, will visit June 15.
Sessions will take place in Room 120 of the visual arts center.
In his application, Hueber referenced his “dedication to helping students achieve their full potential.”
Hueber received a bachelor’s degree in speech communication and kinesiology in 2001 and a master’s in counseling and psychology in 2002 from Stephen F. Austin State University. His doctorate in supervision, curriculum and instruction came from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2012.
With the approval of President Robert Vela, Tammy Perez, foreign languages professor and chair of search committee, scheduled the two candidates for a campus interview after narrowing down the applicant pool.
There were 70 applicants for the vice president for student success, and 18 met the criteria for the position, Perez said.
The committee then chose seven candidates for a video interview. Two of those withdrew their applications because of other obligations.
“We narrowed down to the candidates that we felt exhibited clear vision for the division of student success,” Perez said.
In November 2014, three finalists were considered for the position of vice president for student success, but no one was chosen.
