CCV director Fran Taylor appointed Dean of Students

Montgomery, Ala.—Huntingdon College President J. Cameron West and Provost Chad Eggleston announced today the appointment of Fran Taylor as Dean of Students, effective June 1. Taylor has served the College since 2012 as the director of the Center for Career and Vocation (CCV). Under her leadership, the CCV has been a valued partner in helping Huntingdon students discern and prepare to take their next steps beyond Huntingdon. Taylor has built a network of relationships across campus with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the external community, connecting Huntingdon students with jobs and internship opportunities. Prior to her arrival at Huntingdon, Taylor had a 38-year career as a high school principal, guidance counselor, teacher and coach.

“Fran Taylor’s work at Huntingdon has been truly impressive in building a framework of best practices in career services,” stated West. “She is an effective administrator, and she takes a personal interest in the success of every student.  She has a deep commitment to the mission of Huntingdon College, and she has demonstrated a genuine love and affection for her work at Huntingdon. I am excited about working with her in this new capacity as our vibrant student life program grows further.”

As Dean of Students, Taylor will have primary oversight of student leadership programs, student activities, Greek life, and health services. Dr. Frank Parsons will continue to serve as Vice President for Student Life with responsibility for residence life, judicial affairs, and risk management.

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Founded in 1854, Huntingdon is a coeducational liberal arts college. In 2014 The Chronicle of Higher Education recognized Huntingdon among “The Fastest Growing Colleges in America,”  and Huntingdon has been named among the top regional colleges by U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review.
