BIOGRAPHY OF DR. JENNIFER WIMBISH

Image title

Dr. Jennifer Wimbish, President Emeritus for Cedar Valley College (CVC) of the Dallas College System, was the first African American President of the College. She is the CEO of BW Success Strategies, Incorporated, a consulting firm focused on strategic planning, success coaching, and solutions connected to problem-solving. Her leadership journey has included her serving as Provost and Chief Academic Officer at Lansing Community College in Michigan; Dean of Students and Faculty Counselor at Brookhaven College in the Dallas, Texas area; and teacher and counselor within the public school system of Corpus Christi, Texas. She is a member of the steering committee for the Texas Poor People’s Campaign, and a Co-Chair for the Dallas Affiliate Group. Dr. Jennifer Wimbish is also a member of the Dallas Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.

Dr. Wimbish has designed and taught leadership courses, presented at leadership conferences across the nation, and published a guide to student leadership. Her recent book, Leadership Wisdom for All Generations, is being used for professional development across the nation with a variety of populations.    Recently, she has engaged in professional development for students, and college professionals relative to the topics of Multigenerational, Collaborative Learning, Equity in the Classroom, and Pathways to Career Success. She is a member of the Presidents’ Roundtable, a national organization committed to training and mentoring individuals aspiring to become college presidents. Dr. Wimbish is also active with her Church’s Outreach and Economic/Workforce Programs.   

Dr. Wimbish’s legacy includes a number of key accomplishments. She is the founder of the Corpus Christi, Texas Black History Cultural Committee, an organization that more than forty years later continues to engage the community in historical, cultural, and equity related activities. While in Michigan, as Provost of Lansing Community College, she was instrumental in uniting organizations to develop both transitional housing for homeless families and increase access to technology for underserved populations. At CVC, she led the college to recognition as a military friendly campus, established several Early College High Schools, and initiated a Minority Male program to influence positively college youth. The college’s Phi Theta Kappa Chapter won the title of Most Distinguished Chapter in the world, contributing to Wimbish receiving its prestigious Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Wimbish’s dynamic leadership has been acknowledged through such awards as the National Role Model Award from Minority Access, Incorporated, and the Woman of the Year Award from the Dallas Women’s Council. 

Her involvement in the Dallas community includes service with the Best Southwest Partnership and Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce Boards, Methodist Hospital Citizens Advisory Group, and Head Start of Greater Dallas.

Dr. Wimbish holds a Doctorate in Higher Adult and Lifelong Learning Education from Michigan State University, a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Texas A & M University in Kingsville, Texas, and a Bachelor’s Degree in History Education from Hampton University. She is proudest of being a daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother.
