WINTERVILLE—The National Organization for Student Success (NOSS) held its 48th annual conference in Las Vegas last month and swore in Pitt Community College’s Glynis Mullins as president.

Mullins, who is PCC’s Developmental Math coordinator, says she is “honored and grateful” for the opportunity to lead NOSS in its efforts to support higher educational professionals who are making a positive difference in the lives of students. Prior to becoming president, she’d served as the organization’s president-elect since 2021 and completed a two-year term (2019-21) on its executive board.

“This organization has supported and nurtured my growth as a professional in education, and having an opportunity to serve over 1,000 members is very important to me,” Mullins said. “I love helping and motivating students to become whatever they want to be when they grow up. That is what student success is all about.”

A Greenville resident, Mullins began working at PCC more than 20 years ago as an adjunct instructor. She is a member of Pitt’s Associate in General Education Advisory Committee, co-chairs the college’s Math Performance Measures Work Group, and has participated in the PCC Leadership Academy and various other state and national professional development activities.

“My work at PCC has allowed me to work with students as their instructor, mentor, and, in some situations, their biggest fan,” Mullins said, adding that her “passion for supporting and helping students” is what led her to NOSS.

As president, Mullins will act as chair of the NOSS executive board and preside over its meetings. She will ensure the organization’s annual goals to guide the board have been formulated, act as an official spokesperson in collaboration with the board, and seek to increase “individual and institutional memberships across the United States and abroad.”

Established in 1976 as the National Association for Remedial/Developmental Education Studies, NOSS officially made the change to its current name in 2019. The Alabama-based organization has more than 1,200 members who directly impact student success across the United States and in other countries. It is an advocate for equity, inclusion, diversity and access in education, provides high-quality professional development opportunities, and promotes research and inquiry in the student success field.
