Harford Community College announces new Dean of Arts and Humanities – Baltimore Sun

Harford Community College has announced that Kim Davis is the new Dean of Arts and Humanities.

Davis said she’s looking to build on existing HCC programs and offer new ones, like the new Interactive Media Production program that launched this fall.

This work will help the division once again become a cultural center in Harford County in the humanities and for the musical, visual and performing arts, she said.

“My goals for the division are to help students do well at Harford Community College and beyond, and to help faculty promote that success,” Davis said.

Davis has been in higher education for 20 years. She most recently served as Associate Dean of Communications, Arts, and Humanities at Oakland Community College, a five-campus institution in Michigan. In this role, she facilitated collaboration between faculty and staff and managed projects, budgets and programs that aligned with the college’s strategic goals.

Davis’ research, teaching, and publications focus on student preparation and success. She has implemented data-driven initiatives to help students prepare for college and achieve their academic goals at Oakland Community College; and previously as an assistant professor at Georgia Gwinnett College, a four-year open-enrollment institution.

Davis holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Rutgers University, and a master’s and doctorate in English from Wayne State University. Davis was drawn to HCC because of its welcoming environment that makes it easy for staff and students to succeed, she said.

“Harford Community College is very welcoming,” Davis said. “He beams with a message to come here, stay and succeed. I am thrilled to be part of a team that is so committed to fostering the success of its faculty, staff, and students.
