PASADENA, Texas – Longtime educator Pam Campbell, San Jacinto College assistant vice chancellor, educational partnerships, was recently elected as a board member of the Texas Community College Instructional Administrators (TCCIA), a state association that focuses on college completion, transfer issues, college readiness, student retention, and other student success initiatives.
Campbell said the College will reap significant benefits from involvement with the state association. “As a board member, I will be involved in meaningful conferences that feature presenters from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and other educational leaders,” she commented. “That will ensure that San Jacinto College will stay in step with the times, and with important educational issues. We will have a voice with key community college leaders in the state.”
She said her work as a TCCIA board member will bring practical benefits to San Jacinto College students. “For students, it means we will have access to new ideas and new ways of facilitating learning so that we continue to fulfill our student success agenda,” Campbell remarked. “We will also have opportunities to showcase the accomplishments of San Jacinto College students.”
Campbell, who lives in the Clear Lake area, holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Texas Tech University, and a M.S. in mathematics from the University of Houston Clear Lake. She will soon earn an Ed.D. in community college administration from Texas Tech’s online doctoral program. She served as a public school math teacher for 14 years, and then as a college math teacher for 20 years. She then served as a San Jacinto College dual credit director for 13 years before accepting her position as the College’s assistant vice chancellor for educational partnerships in January 2011.
San Jacinto College’s participation in the TCCIA helps to meet the College’s degree completion goals that are part of Achieving the Dream, a national initiative dedicated to helping community college students stay in school and earn college certificates and degrees. As a designated Achieving the Dream Leader College, San Jacinto College is helping to close achievement gaps and accelerate student success.
San Jacinto College offers a wide range of dual credit options at all three campuses. All three campuses also operate early college high schools in which qualifying students take high school and college courses concurrently.
