The Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) Board of Trustees has appointed Dr. Karen Archambault the vice president of Enrollment Management and Student Success effective Sept. 1 to succeed Dr. Michael A. Cioce who will become the college’s sixth president at that time.

Dr. Archambault has served as dean of Enrollment Management since September 2015.

Since her arrival, RCBC has bucked national enrollment trends with three consecutive semesters of growth, overhauled the structure and customer focus of student services in the state-of-the-art Student Success Center, and implemented the rapidly growing 3+1 program in which students can earn a Rowan University bachelor’s degree for less than what most universities charge for a single year.

“Dr. Archambault has been critical to the success achieved by the Enrollment Management and Student Success Division the past three years and I look forward to our next chapter as we begin new positions at the top community college in New Jersey,” Acting President Dr. Michael A. Cioce said. “Karen is extremely analytical, compassionate for students and a tremendous leader who has helped shape the college’s largest division into a team that truly works together to help all students succeed.”

In addition to her position at RCBC, Dr. Archambault is very active in NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising, a nonprofit organization that promotes and supports quality academic advising in colleges. NACADA elected Dr. Archambault to serve as its president starting in October.

“Working with the talented students, faculty and staff of RCBC has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career and I’m so excited about this new opportunity to help students and the college continue to grow,” Dr. Archambault said.

Archambault holds a doctorate in educational leadership from Rowan University, a master’s in counseling from Trinity Washington University, a master’s degree in history from Old Dominion University and a bachelor’s degree in history from Salisbury University.
