Blinn College has named Dr. Cynthia Griffith its vice president for instruction to ensure a streamlined vision for the College’s academic credit and non-credit programs.
Griffith, formerly Blinn’s vice president for Allied Health Sciences, will oversee the College’s Academic Affairs Division in addition to Health Sciences and Workforce Education. In this newly-structured position, Griffith will guide the College’s academic credit programs, dual credit for high schools and its career and technical certification programs.
“Cynthia is a distinguished scholar with a proven record of promoting collaboration and enhancing academic excellence, innovation and institutional change,” said Dr. Harold Nolte, Blinn College district president. “She has been an outstanding leader for our Health Sciences Division and I look forward to her playing a significant role in the future of Blinn College.”
The position includes responsibilities previously held by the vice president for Academic Affairs. Dr. Pamela Anglin was hired to oversee Academic Affairs beginning in January but recently informed the College she would be unable to perform those duties.
