Board elevates Dr. Jacqueline Galbiati to VP of institutional advancement, research, and strategic initiatives.
On Tuesday, February 6, the Camden County College Board of Trustees appointed Dr. Jacqueline Galbiati to the position of vice president of institutional advancement, research, and strategic initiatives.
Dr. Galbiati joined Camden County College as dean of the math, science, and health careers division in April 2017. Previously, she served as vice president for academic and student services at Cumberland County College in Vineland, NJ from 2009 to 2017. She received the New Jersey Council of Community College Spirit Award and NJ Congressional Recognition in 2016 for her successful work with community colleges.
“After a few months as dean, Dr. Galbiati proved to be an integral part of our Middle States Accreditation Steering Committee due to her leadership at Cumberland County College,” states Camden County College president, Don Borden. “When our Board of Trustees identified an interest in increasing the leadership capacity, it seemed natural to add a vice president position and appoint her. Together with Dr. Edwards [VP of Academic Affairs] we have a strong leadership team and a better organization.”
While at Cumberland County College, Dr. Galbiati led several local, regional, and statewide initiatives for the improvement of student success including establishing the Center for Academic Student Success focusing on student support initiatives to assist the college in retention and completion of at-risk students, leading the Achieving the Dream initiative and a five-year, two million dollar U.S. Department of Education Strengthening Institutions (Title III) grant, and decreasing the need for incoming students who require developmental education by 23%.
“Because of Jackie’s experience planning several strategic initiates, and her success in leading research-based programs, we decided to combine our division of institutional advancement with institutional research and strategic planning and put her at the helm,” states Borden.
Dr. Galbiati will lead the Middle States reaccreditation process and then produce the College’s 50th anniversary gala and commencement ceremonies.
“I look forward to collaborating with the College leadership in creating initiatives that will strengthen our position in the changing environment of higher education,” states Galbiati. “I am so fortunate to be working with a visionary President, leadership team, and county officials that support student success for our residents. The partnerships with the Board of Governors in constructing the new Health and Science building in Camden that is expected to open in 2019 is just one example of how county partnerships expand opportunities for students to meet their academic goals.”
