        Jenkins pictureUniversity of Houston-Clear Lake welcomed new Dean of Students Anthony Jenkins in January. Jenkins joined UH-Clear Lake after serving as associate dean of students at University of North Carolina Wilmington.

“We are excited to have Dr. Jenkins at UH-Clear Lake,” said UH-Clear Lake Senior Vice President and Provost Edward J. Hayes. “Dr. Jenkins brings a wealth of experience, and his enthusiasm permeates to all of the people he meets. He is a great addition to an already strong student services team.”

Jenkins, a native of Washington D.C., received his bachelor’s degree in sociology and criminal justice from Fayetteville State University. He went on to receive his master’s in criminology from North Carolina Central University and a doctorate in higher education and student affairs from Virginia Tech University.

While serving at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Jenkins was responsible for the supervision of the Dean of Students office. He also served as an advocate/liaison for students in the university community and represented the assistant vice chancellor/dean in his absence. During his tenure in higher education, Jenkins has researched and presented in the areas of mentoring, high school violence and first-generation students of color.

“ I’m here at UH-Clear Lake to be an agent of change and I am excited about the prospect,” said Jenkins. “We must continue to change the way we do things and improve upon our successes.”

At UH-Clear Lake, Jenkins oversees programs and services that are designed to support students in both academic and co-curricular pursuits. Services directed by the Dean of Students Office include the campus information desk, advocacy and referral services, the Student Assistance Center, student judicial services and student retention services.
