The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents has announced the appointment of Dr. Terisa C. Riley as Senior Vice President of Fiscal & Student Affairs effective immediately. She will lead the areas formerly under the Division of Finance and Administration as well as those under the Division of Student Affairs. "

Dr. Riley has been an instrumental member of my leadership team, especially as we continue to look for ways to lower costs while maintaining excellence in both our academic and student programs,” said Dr. Steven H. Tallant, President of Texas A&M-Kingsville. “I’m confident in her abilities to lead our fiscal and student affairs area, and I know that her energy, expertise and enthusiasm will benefit not only current Javelinas, but also those who come to us in the future.”

“Texas A&M University-Kingsville is the epitome of excellence in education, and I am proud to serve the university and its students,” Riley said. “The merger of the Division of Finance and Administration and Division of Student Affairs was an excellent decision. The merger has helped the university to save money at a crucial time; and, more importantly, the collaboration and communication among the division members has been enhanced.”

Riley said her biggest goal is to create a long-term budget and campus infrastructure that supports enrollment and academic program growth.

Riley served as vice president for student affairs since July 2007. She came to Texas A&M-Kingsville from the University of South Dakota, where she served as the assistant vice president of student services and dean of students.

She also has professional experience with Saint Louis University, Greenville College, Central Methodist College and the Affton and Lindbergh School Districts in Missouri. She also has served on the graduate faculties of the University of South Dakota and Saint Louis University, teaching courses in higher education administration and serving on dissertation committees.
