Beginning Nov. 1, Carlos García, associate vice chancellor for student success and auxiliary services, will serve as interim vice chancellor for student success.
In an Oct. 28 memo announcing the news to campus, Chancellor Venkat Reddy wrote that “Carlos has demonstrated a commitment to student success during his tenure here at UCCS and during his time at CU Boulder, and I am confident in his abilities to serve in this interim role.”
García joined UCCS in March 2016 following nearly 20 years as director, then executive director, of CU Boulder’s University Memorial Center, a hub for student services, activism and community engagement.
Now associate vice chancellor for student success and auxiliary services, García is responsible for providing executive leadership to auxiliary and student service operations. He recently served as president of the board of directors for the National Association of College Auxiliary Services (NACAS) and is a UCCS Excellence in Leadership program alumnus.
“I am honored to be asked to serve as interim vice chancellor for student success,” García said in response to the announcement. “I look forward to serving the division and to continue moving it forward.”
García earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Texas at El Paso and is a Certified Auxiliary Services Professional. The announcement of a national search to find a permanent vice chancellor for student success is forthcoming.
