Dr. Renay Scott has been named the new president of New Mexico State University's Dona Ana Community College.
She will start June 1 on a 12-month appointment and a base salary of $175,000.
Scott currently is vice president and provost of academic services at Owens Community College, and has held that post since 2010. She has been with Owens since 2006.
"Dr. Scott is a respected scholar, teacher, and administrator with broad experience in a community college setting," stated Dr. Daniel J. Howard, executive vice president and provost of New Mexico State University, on the DACC web site. "During the course of the extensive interview process, she impressed virtually everyone she met with her openness, vision, and willingness to tackle difficult problems. She is a consensus builder and brings the 'can do' attitude and willingness to consider innovative solutions that I was seeking in the next president of DACC."
DACC is located in Las Cruces, NM.
Scott has served 26 years in education, 21 of those in higher education. She came to Owens in 2006 as dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, and in 2009 was named the college's vice provost overseeing the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Health Sciences and the library, on both the Perrysburg Township and Findlay campuses; the faculty professional development plan; the Honors program; and service learning.
She completed her doctorate in curriculum and instruction from Wayne State University, her master of arts in curriculum and instruction from Michigan State University and her bachelor of arts in social studies education from Calvin College.
Owens will soon initiate a search for the position of vice president of academics.
