Dr. Yolanda Wilson became president of the College of Southern Maryland January 3, 2023. She is the first African American president in the college’s 64-year history.
Prior to her presidential appointment, Wilson was vice president of Instruction, Ashe Campus and Alleghany Center at Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. She worked in the North Carolina and South Carolina Community College Systems for more than 22 years, beginning her career as an adjunct faculty member before moving into more progressive leadership roles in both academic affairs, student services, and campus operations. Her work in higher education has centered on creating a student-ready college culture, mitigating institutional barriers to access, retention, and completion, and strategically focusing on programming and policies that support all students to success.
Wilson has completed the 2019-2020 Aspen Rising President’s Fellowship program, received the Phi Theta Kappa Distinguished College Administrator’s Awards – both internationally and within the Carolinas – and was recognized as the South Carolina Technical Education Association Administrator of the Year at York Technical College. She serves on the Aspen Institute Alumni Advisory Council and is the Region 2 director for the American Association for Women in Community Colleges.
She serves as a peer evaluator for the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and is a Leadership Coach for Achieving the Dream. On June 30, 2023, she was appointed to the American Association of Community Colleges Commission on College Readiness for a three-year term. She is also on the USM at Southern Maryland Board of Advisors, the Charles County Chamber of Commerce Board, the Maryland Association of Community Colleges Presidents’ Council and Board of Directors, the Transform Mid-Atlantic Board’s Presidents’ Council, and the Southern Maryland Workforce Development Board.
