Doña Ana Community College hires new vice president for academic affairs


Doña Ana Community College has hired Xeturah Woodley, Ph.D., as its new vice president for academic affairs.

Woodley has 27 years of work experience in higher education, including more than 17 years of teaching experience and more than nine years of academic administration at colleges in New Mexico, Colorado and North Carolina, DACC said in a news release.

Woodley has a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction, a master’s degree in social sciences and a bachelor’s degree in African American studies and psychology. She also earned two community college certificates in online teaching/learning and entrepreneurship.

“Dr. Woodley comes to DACC with the credentials and experience to serve the college well,” DACC President Mónica Torres said. “Her professional record also reflects significant responsibility for other critical institutional efforts including distance education, grants management and accreditation."

Woodley fills the position held on an interim basis since January 2021 by Science, Engineering and Mathematics Dean Joe Butler.
