Jacqueline Mimms, the assistant vice president for student affairs in the systemwide University of California Office of the President, has been named California State University, Bakersfield’s associate vice president for enrollment management. Her appointment is effective Dec. 5.
Mimms replaces Homer Montalvo, the former associate vice president for admissions and enrollment services, who retired in October. The position has been renamed and restructured to fit the growing needs of the campus.
CSUB President Horace Mitchell said that in addition to reporting to the provost and vice president for academic affairs, Mimms will be responsible for providing leadership for the campus’ retention services as well as admissions and enrollment. “Dr. Mimms has the extensive background in executive management at both a campus and systemwide level to help us achieve our goals and further our vision to collaborate with our community partners,” Mitchell said.
Mimms has been at her current position since 1999 and has had a major focus on enhancing student access, recruitment, and retention. Previously at UC Riverside she was the assistant to the executive vice chancellor from 1986 to 1987, the executive officer-director of the budget from 1987 to 1994, and the assistant vice chancellor for campus relations from 1994 to 1999.
Mimms holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and education and a master of science degree in health-care administration from CSU Los Angeles, and a master’s and doctorate in educational administration from UC Riverside.
