Dr. Ron Hicks selected as new Executive Director of Student Success

To the CHS community:
We are so pleased to share the news that Dr. Ron Hicks has been selected as the new Executive Director of Student Success for CHS, effective Monday, October 30. 
Ron brings a wealth of experience to CHS, including his time here as the Senior Director of Student Success and most recently as the Interim Executive Director. Previously, he served as Senior Associate Dean of Students on ASU’s Downtown Phoenix Campus and Associate Dean of Students on ASU’s Tempe Campus.
Ron came to ASU from Colorado State University, where he earned his PhD in Education and Human Resource Studies. He also holds a Master of Education in Counseling-Human Relations from Northern Arizona University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and History-Government from Adams State College.
The student experience is central to our mission as a college – preparing leaders to address the health challenges facing the communities we serve. We are fortunate to have Ron leading and supporting the Student Success team as we deepen our focus on student recruitment, enrollment, retention, and engagement in the coming year. 
We would like to thank the entire search committee, chaired by Colleen Cordes and Ana Tello, for their dedication and service, as well as everyone in the college who participated in this successful search.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Hicks as he takes on this important leadership role in the college. Don’t hesitate to reach out to him to discuss ways you might work together to further our shared mission of student success.
