Hughes Named UAM Vice Chancellor for Student Engagement

January 25th, 2023 by

UAM_JayHughesThe University of Arkansas at Monticello (UAM) has announced the appointment of Jay Hughes as vice chancellor for Student Engagement.

Hughes has 40 years of combined experience in both public and higher education. He graduated from UAM in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts in history degree. His career in education began in Crossett at Norman Junior High School as a history teacher. He held positions as a history teacher at Monticello High School and Crossett High School before pursuing a master’s degree in general counseling at Louisiana Tech. Hughes received his M.A. in 1992 before taking a teaching position at Blytheville High School. Two years later, he returned to Monticello as assistant principal of Monticello Junior High School, a post he held until 2000 when he became principal of Monticello Middle School.

In 2005, Hughes became the partnership coordinator for the UAM School of Education while also serving as the faculty athletics representative for intercollegiate athletics. In 2006, Hughes returned as principal of Monticello Middle School. He joined the UAM administration as dean of students and director of Residence Life in 2009. The following year, he was named vice chancellor for Student Affairs before becoming the vice chancellor for University Operations and Student Affairs in 2016.

Hughes retired as vice chancellor for University Operations and Student Affairs at UAM in October 2017. After a brief retirement, he returned to work as the director of Alternative Education with the Monticello School District and eventually returned to UAM as the alumni and development officer in 2020.

Dr. Peggy Doss, chancellor of UAM, said, “I am excited that Mr. Hughes accepted this critical role at UAM. He is a respected professional with a firm commitment to the success of our students. His years of experience and exceptional leadership will greatly benefit the institution as we work to enhance the overall student experience and foster a living and learning environment in which all students will thrive.”

“UAM has been an important part of my life from the time I first arrived as a student-athlete in 1978,” Hughes said. “I’m truly blessed to have yet another opportunity to serve under the visionary leadership of Dr. Doss, and I am committed to the success of all our students.”
