Monaca, PA – Community College of Beaver County (CCBC) announced today the appointment of its newest academic leader, Dr. Sutonia Boykin, as Vice President of Student Affairs. Effective October 1, 2020, she will be responsible for leading all student affairs and will oversee other departments. Reporting to President Dr. Roger W. Davis, she will also be a member of the President’s Executive Cabinet.

“We are pleased to welcome Sutonia to the CCBC faculty,” said Dr. Davis. “Her impressive experience, leadership style and results-driven approach will help to build educational pathways for the students and faculty around her, and ensure that our core value of Students First is upheld and maintained.” 

Dr. Boykin joins CCBC from Rockland Community College of the State University of New York, where she was the Dean of Student Development. Her prior positions include Director of Transfer Services at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City, NY, as well as an adjunct professor, teaching the First Year Success Courses in both face-to-face and online formats at LaGuardia and the University of Maryland, respectively.

“I am excited to get started at CCBC. I am always on the front line or in the trenches helping students – especially first-generation students, as I was one myself,” said Boykin. “I value collaboration with faculty, academic colleges, and student leaders to enhance the student experience and each student’s potential for success and to create environments that foster that success by celebrating learning, accepting differences, and developing critical thinking.”

Dr. Boykin earned her B.S. in Business Administration, M.S. in Education, and Doctorate in Community College Leadership at Ferris State University.

Dr. Boykin joins Dr. Davis’s leadership team as the College’s third female vice president, and first African American vice president of student affairs. By supporting the College’s strategic priority to promote and retain a diverse workforce, students will see themselves in the campus’s workforce, and leave prepared to maneuver in a multicultural world.
