It is Not To Late to Join Us!


New Vice Chancellor for Student Development

Effective July 1, 2013, Dr. Fabienne (Faye) McPhail Naples will serve as City College’s Vice Chancellor of Student Development.  Interim Vice Chancellor Dr. Ed Shenk will continue his service until June 30th and will assist orienting Dr. Naples to CCSF beginning in May.  Dr. Naples will also participate in the hiring committees for the various upcoming student services positions.  As you can see from her biography below, Dr. Naples has a strong record of serving students in administrative positions.  We look forward to her joining the CCSF team!   

Dr. Fabienne McPhail Naples, formerly the Vice President for Student Success and the Accreditation Liaison Officer at Golden West College, in the Coast Community College District, has held leadership positions in Student Services for more than 16 years.  She recently served as the Associate Vice President of Student Success Services at the University of Nevada, Reno. In 2012-2013, Dr. Naples received a visiting scholar appointment at Stanford University as a Human Rights educator in the Stanford Human Rights Education Initiative program.

Dr. Naples has acquired a unique blend of academic instruction and student service leadership through her various roles over her career, including Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools and Special Assistant to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs at UCLA; Dean of Student Learning in Social Sciences at Moorpark College; Project Manager, Community Services Learning Program at Santa Monica College; Assistant Dean of Students and Director of the Women’s Center at Stanford University; and Graduate Residence Dean at Stanford University.  “My life has been dedicated to students first as a college administrator,” she states.

At University of Nevada, Reno she had the leading role in an effort involving more than 30 faculty and 2,000 students to provide supplemental instruction that resulted in a positive, measurable impact by improving both retention and success rates for underprepared students. At Santa Monica, she created the Service Learning Project linking students with more than 100 community-based agencies. At Moorpark College, she was Dean of Student Learning, where she worked in an integrated administrative student learning model that blended student services and instruction – her particular assignment included Student Counseling services and Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Dr. Naples states, “I have a strong commitment to helping others accomplish their goals by using the guiding principles of participatory governance, encouraging team building and creating cross-functional teams for student development. I welcome the opportunity to work together as a community with CCSF students, staff and faculty in this most challenging time of change.” 

Dr. Naples earned her doctorate from UCLA in Educational Leadership, her master’s degree in History and Literature from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and her bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa in Journalism and Public Relations.
