Dr. Jennifer Methvin spent 23 years in Arkansas higher education and the last four years as president of Crowder College in Neosho, Mo., and will began her duties as ASU-Beebe's Chancellor effective July 1, 2018.

From 2005-2014, she served as vice chancellor for academics at University of Arkansas Community College at Hope, where Welch was chancellor from 2005-2008. Methvin began her higher education career as an adjunct instructor at ASU-Beebe before being hired as assistant professor of English at the Newport campus of ASU-Beebe in 1993.

Prior to her work at UACC in hope, Methvin served in various roles – including Division Chair of Arts and Sciences – at University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville from 1999-2005. She was assistant professor of English at ASU-Newport from 1993-1999.

At Crowder College, Methvin oversaw a public two-year institution with many similarities to ASU-Beebe. Both institutions have campuses in multiple cities and offer on-campus housing. Crowder has 5,580 students in a nine-county service area with an annual budget of $46 million.

“I am honored to be invited to serve as the next chancellor of Arkansas State University-Beebe. ASU-Beebe’s long and rich history of providing quality educational programs sets the standard for Arkansas comprehensive community colleges,” Methvin said. “I am encouraged by the opportunities I see ahead, impressed with the dedication of the faculty and staff, inspired by the students I met at each campus, and exceptionally humbled to rejoin the institution where I taught my first community college course as an adjunct faculty member.”
