TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 26, 2016) – Tallahassee Community College has named Sheri Rowland as its new vice president for student affairs.

Rowland comes to the College from Middle Georgia State University, where she has served in multiple roles since 2012, including vice president for enrollment management.

“What a privilege it is to be selected to serve as the next vice president for student affairs at TCC,” said Rowland. “I am humbled to be joining such an exceptional leadership team whose clear vision is to design and deliver innovative strategies, programs and services that align with the College’s mission.”

At Middle Georgia State University, Rowland provided strategic direction and leadership to areas such as recruitment, undergraduate admissions, student records, the call center and financial aid. During her tenure, the university transitioned from Macon State College to Middle Georgia State University as part of the University System of Georgia’s consolidation efforts.

Prior to Middle Georgia State University, Rowland served at TCC in progressive positions from 2004 to 2012, most recently as dean of enrollment management, and at Gulf Coast Community College as director of enrollment services and research.

“Dr. Sheri Rowland’s 20-plus years of experience in the areas of change management, enrollment management and executive leadership make her the perfect fit for the direction of this college,” said Jim Murdaugh, TCC president. “Her student-centered focus and documented successes will provide the leadership needed to guide the strong team currently in place as we continue to serve our students.”

Rowland will begin her tenure March 21. She succeeds Sally Search, who is retiring after serving the College for more than 20 years in various positions.
