When I started my career with SSC 20 years ago, I never imagined that I would get to spend my days traveling across the country supporting higher education universities and colleges. I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to motivate and mentor the next generation of leaders to help them grow personally and professionally. My extensive experience with SSC has provided me with a deep understanding of our processes, which I apply to each campus to help boost recruitment and retention. The goal of each of our higher ed teams is to create a campus environment that feels like home for students.

Derrick Parker - Division Vice President, Higher Education

I oversee all the facility operations across the Texas A&M University System. As a proud Aggie Alum, I am passionate about providing the best facilities for the faculty to teach, the staff to work and the students to learn in. I have the unique opportunity to spend my days on-site in College Station, where I get to work alongside our SSC team members and all the Aggie students on campus. We are a university rooted in tradition and in my role with SSC I’m able to contribute to ensuring those traditions live on for years to come.

From our partners...

The transition with SSC went very well, I believe in transparency. When SSC came on board it was very important to make a campus wide announcement that SSC was open to retaining the former team members from the other company (some had been here for 32 years). It was great that SSC was able to bring them on board and provide training and coaching.

Erna Perkins JonesDirector of Facilities, Johnson C Smith University

Their expertise and demonstrated work history have provided many operational and fiscal benefits to MTSU. They understand and are responsible for the higher education environment and the challenges associated with serving a diverse community of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Simply put, SSC is a valuable partner who provides needed services that are on display everywhere, every day.

Joe WhitefieldAssistant VP of Facilities, MTSU

I think of the (SSC) team now as thought leaders. I needed higher order thinking and advisement, and they’re integral to that. They give me the valuable perspectives that I’m missing.
