Flores Named ASU Student Affairs VP

May 12, 2012

Dr. Javier Flores, a West Texas native with more than two decades of higher education experience, including the last 13 years at Howard College in Big Spring, has been named vice president of student affairs and enrollment management at Angelo State University.

ASU President Joseph C. Rallo announced the appointment, effective July 1, of Flores, who has been provost of Howard College’s Big Spring campus for the last two years.  Prior to that, Flores served eight years as the institution’s vice president for student services. 

“Dr. Flores,” Rallo said, “is ideally suited for ASU’s new directions in student affairs and enrollment management.  He has 10 years of senior administrative experience at the vice presidential level, both in student and instructional services, that will enhance our efforts in student transition and retention. 

“Additionally, he has written Hispanic Serving Institution grants for Howard College and worked on a joint HSI grant with Angelo State.  As a first-generation student himself, Dr. Flores is familiar with the challenges faced by that significant segment of ASU’s student population,” Rallo said. 

In his ASU position, Flores will oversee Admissions, Financial Aid, Registrar’s Office, Career Development, Housing and Residential Programs, Student Life and Student Services, Student Government and University Recreation and Intramurals.  In addition, he will provide leadership in the implementation and coordination of ASU’s Title III and Title V HSI Grants. 

A native of Sonora, Flores has been affiliated with Howard College since 1999, first as dean of student services through 2002 and then as vice president of student services through 2010 before being named provost two years ago.  He also served 16 months as interim provost for Howard College’s SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf. 

Prior to his affiliation with Howard College, he worked at New Mexico State University for three years as a residence hall manager with additional work in new student orientation. 

Flores earned his Bachelor of Arts in political science from Texas Tech University, his Master of Arts in educational management and development from NMSU and his Doctor of Education in administration of higher education from Texas Tech.
