Letter from the Interim Vice Preside​nt


Greetings Esteemed Faculty!    

As the summer comes to an end, and we prepare to begin another academic year, I look forward to working with you all as we endeavor to inspire and educate our amazing and diverse student body. I’d like to personally welcome you to the 2017 Faculty Development Week, “Embracing our Future and Responsibilities.”  We are focused on moving forward together and sharing in the responsibility of sustaining a healthy student body, faculty, staff, and college. 

I have had the distinct honor and privilege to serve as the Interim Vice President of this fine institution for nearly two years. Serving as the Chief Academic Officer is a responsibility that I do not take lightly; maintaining the academic integrity of the institution, ensuring that our students are afforded the best educational experience, and supporting each of you so that you are able to effectively do your job, is something I hold in high regard. It is my RESPONSIBILTY, and I have embraced the role even during a time when the financial FUTURE of higher education seems bleak. As educators, we persevere and keep the end goal in mind - the success of our students and the impact we are making on their future.     

This academic year, I challenge each and every one of you to “live our mission” and reflect on the many reasons why you intentionally decided to bring your talents to Malcolm X College.  Perhaps it’s that you love teaching and watching students grow through the acquisition of knowledge phase; maybe you’re wholly committed to the notion of the “American Dream” - that education should be accessible to everyone; it surely isn’t the lucrative salary! Many of you chose this path because THIS work is rewarding – you have accepted the RESPONSIBILTY of changing someone’s life, shaping their FUTURE, for the better.     

I am humbled by the tremendous job each of you do.  I am confident that we will have a tremendous year of creative and intellectual experiences for our students.  Thank you for your continued service to the College and most importantly, for the integral role you play in the lives of our students.     

All the best,
Kimberly Hollingsworth 

Interim Vice President of Academic & Student Affairs​
