CiAM Appoints New Director of Student Affairs and Director of Admissions Heading into Academic Year

Following extensive searches, CiAM has appointed Dr. Jinny Oh as Director of Student Affairs and Stephen Jacob as its newest Director of Admissions and Recruitment.

“Jinny brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that I think will be an immediate gamechanger with regards to CiAM’s student services,” said Dr. Juan Garcia, Provost and Vice President of CiAM. “Her expertise in communicating with various teams and coordinating student support efforts makes Jinny an amazing addition to our team.”

In her role at CiAM, Oh will oversee Admissions, Registrar, Financial Aid, Student Services, and Career Services. Her appointment is effective July 16.

Prior to this appointment, Oh served as Dean of Enrollment and Student Affairs at Charles R. Drew University, where she oversaw student academic support services, student retention, admissions, and registrar services. She has also served as Regional Director of Enrollment and Student Services for the University of Redlands’ MBA program and as Director of Admissions and Student Affairs for USC’s Physician Assistant program.

Working alongside Oh will be Stephen Jacob, CiAM’s new Director of Admission. His appointment is effective July 16.

With over a decade in admissions and recruiting, Jacob most recently served as the Director of Enrollment Management at California Intercontinental University. While there, he managed a team of 7 enrollment advisors and 2 financial aid officers, contributed to a 90% student retention rate, and created targeted support systems to help enroll veterans.
“Stephen not only brings an experienced set of eyes to our admissions team,” said Garcia, “but he’s also willing to roll up his sleeves to get involved to solve a problem. That, mixed with his clear concern for making sure that students are supported and given every opportunity to succeed, make him a perfect fit at CiAM.” CiAM is both proud and excited to welcome Dr. Jinny Oh (jinny.oh@ciam.edu) and Stephen Jacob (Stephen.jacob@ciam.edu) to the team!
