New Yavapai College vice president Stuart Blacklaw

Yavapai College has hired Stuart Blacklaw, Ph.D., as its new vice president of instruction and student services.

Blacklaw replaces Dr. Greg Gillespie, who accepted a job as president of Ventura Community College in Ventura, Calif., this summer. Blacklaw is scheduled to start at Yavapai College on Nov. 1.

Blacklaw was chosen from among 85 applicants from across the nation. His most recent position was vice president for instruction at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Mich.

In his new position, Blacklaw will be responsible for Yavapai College's 76 programs of study, 32 degree programs and 57 certificate programs. He will also oversee the College Library, Instructional Support and Improvement, Student Services, and Teaching and eLearning Support (TeLS).

"To have 85 colleagues from across the nation apply for this position speaks volumes of the positive reputation of Yavapai College," Dr. Penny Wills, Yavapai College president, said. "It was a thorough selection process, and we're thrilled that Stuart agreed to join Yavapai College."

"From the moment I stepped on to campus, I knew this was a good place to be," Blacklaw said. "There was warmth and positive energy everywhere. As I traveled around the area, I discovered that the environment I found so welcoming on campus was actually part of the culture of the community. It was so easy to picture my family there, enjoying all that the region and the College has to offer."

Blacklaw has served in higher education as an adjunct and full-time faculty member, a program director, department chair, faculty senate president, assistant, associate and full dean.

Blacklaw has a bachelor's degree in Communication from Olivet (Mich.) College and a master's degree in Telecommunication Arts from the University of Michigan. He completed most of the coursework toward his doctorate at the University of Michigan and completed the coursework and dissertation through Capella University, earning a Ph.D. in Higher Education, Academic Administration in 2008. His dissertation identified best practices in the development of assessment strategies that lead to instructional improvement.
