HOUSTON [April 22, 2016] – “ I am ready to hit the ground running. I am ready to work with students and work with the community,” said Dr. Athos Brewer, the newest Houston Community College (HCC) Vice Chancellor of Student Services.
For Dr. Brewer this is a responsibility that, more than a title, represents the culmination of a journey working with educational and civic organizations.
I have always been innovative in terms of student success. I intend to move the needle in terms of retention and completion. I will be looking at technology solutions to help our students and create high impact strategies to increase their success,” he added.
Dr. Brewer, who starts his new position on June 6, brings a wealth of experience as past Vice President for Student Affairs at Bronx Community College (BCC) of the City University of New York (CUNY). He also served as member of the Advisory Board for Maryland’s juvenile justice system, and received fellowships from the American Council on Education (ACE) and the National Institutes of Health Intramural Research Training.
“Dr. Brewer’s experience in Student Services is in line with our strategic priority of focusing on Student Success,” said Dr. Cesar Maldonado, HCC chancellor.
As new Vice Chancellor of Student Services, Dr. Brewer will oversee academic planning and curriculum development, the coordination of student initiatives amongst HCC campuses, the allocation of funds and an overall leadership in implementing student standards and policies.
