Hodges University Names New Associate Dean and Chief Student Success Officer

Hodges University News

Hodges University is pleased to announce the promotions of Christine Manson as the chief student success officer and Professor Tracey Lanham as associate dean of the Fisher School of Technology.

Manson joined Hodges in August 2015 as director of the Dr. Peter Thomas Veterans Services Center. Earning a bachelor’s degree in business management from Hodges, as well as a master’s degree in global studies from Liberty University, she enlisted in the United States Air Force Reserve in 2002 and was a munitions systems craftsman before earning a commission in 2012.  As a captain, she currently serves as a maintenance officer assigned to the 920th Maintenance Group at Patrick Air Force, Florida. 

In her new role as chief student success officer, she will oversee Hodges’ Student Success department, which consists of the Veterans Services Center, Career Services, Office of Counseling and Disability Support Services.

“I am passionate about creating highly effective teams and helping others, so I could not be happier about this new opportunity. It is so exciting to be a part of a team that is changing lives and in-turn affecting this great community and all the places our future graduates will go,” she said.

In addition to Manson, Lanham is also a Hodges alumna. Earning her associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer information technology, she previously served as the program chair for computer information technology.

“Tracey has dedicated significant time and effort to engage outside stakeholders with the school and its programs. She has focused on attracting more women into technology occupations, and she has expressed some ideas on how best to pursue ‘joint ventures’ with the other schools at the university where conjoining technology with another discipline can result in a positive workforce development outcome,” said Dr. John Meyer, executive vice president of academic affairs.

As the associate dean, Lanham views it as a great opportunity to “fulfill the technology needs of businesses within our community by offering more flexible options that will allow students to become workforce ready in a variety of industries.”
