P&HCC Hires New Vice President of Academic & Student Success Services

MARTINSVILLE, VA – After an intensive, nationwide search, Dr. Christopher Wikstrom has been named the Vice President of Academic & Student Success Services at Patrick & Henry Community College.
“Dr. Wikstrom’s extensive experience and expertise in areas of faculty leadership, institutional research/effectiveness, strategic planning, and accreditation combined with his student-centered focus makes him an outstanding choice for this critical position,” said Dr. Greg Hodges, P&HCC President. “I am confident that he is the right person at the right time to help us fulfill our mission of enhancing the economic mobility of our students and their families.”
Originally from Blacksburg, VA, Dr. Wikstrom began his educational career as a math teacher with Montgomery County Public Schools before taking a similar position with Patrick County Public Schools in Stuart, VA, where he currently resides. Wikstrom came to P&HCC in 2011 as a math professor before becoming the Director of Institutional Research & Effectiveness and Interim Dean of Academic Success and College Transfer. Dr. Wikstrom is a graduate of Virginia Tech where he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and Old Dominion University where he earned his Ph.D. in 2018.
“I’m very humbled and excited to step into this new role and serve this incredible community in this capacity,” said Wikstrom. “Patrick & Henry is an integral part of the community for which the success of our students is my top priority.”
Dr. Wikstrom begins his tenure as Vice President of Academic & Student Success Services on July 1, 2022.
