Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - by Betty Proctor, Chattanooga State

Stressing the importance of a proactive and high-quality approach to meet the advising needs of students, Chattanooga State Community College has selected Dr. Terri Hernandez as its director of academic advising.

Dr. Hernandez brings more than 12 years' experience in higher education to the position and is excited to serve the greater Chattanooga area.

“I have always led through the tenants of servant and relational leadership, grounded in the premise that all team members should grow and develop as leaders, working together interdependently toward a common vision,” shares Dr. Hernandez.

A native of Indiana, Dr. Hernandez completed missionary work in Belize before enlisting in the United States Air Force. She served as a personnel specialist with cross training as a security specialist for six years before receiving an honorable discharge allowing her to actively begin pursuing higher education degrees.

Successfully completing her doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Central Florida with a dissertation focus on “Academic Work and the Use of Technology,” Dr. Hernandez has considerable experience not only as an instructor, but also in the areas of admissions, transfers, veteran services, continuing education and professional development.

“Chattanooga State is fortunate to have someone with Dr. Hernandez’s experience to join our team. We are excited to see the progress she will bring to our advising experience,” states Dr. Elizabeth Norton, vice president for Academic Affairs.

Advising questions can be directed to Dr. Hernandez at 423-697- 3159 or by email to terri.hernandez@chattanoogastate.edu.
