Higgins, Robert

Robert James Higgins ’80, J.D. ’94, a former deputy county attorney, has been appointed to the Navajo County Superior Court. The appointment was announced by Gov. Jan Brewer. It fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Carolyn C. Holliday.

“Robert touts a level of professional experience outside of law that is rare among judicial candidates,” said Governor Jan Brewer. “In addition to a strong legal background, he was a teacher for many years and is a philanthropist in his community. He is well-rounded and well-equipped to serve the Court and the community.”

Higgins has practiced civil and criminal law in Navajo County for 17 years. He has an extensive legal background, including experience in criminal law, transactional matters, and civil litigation. He also has a broad range of expertise in estate planning and contractual issues, child dependency cases, personal injury matters, and forcible detainer actions.

Higgins completed his undergraduate degree from Santa Clara University in 1980 and received a master's degree from Arizona State University in 1988. He graduated from Santa Clara University Law School in 1994. He was admitted to practice in 1994 and admitted to the bar the same year. Higgins was an English teacher at Brophy College Preparatory for seven years prior to attending law school.

“He has been active in education efforts in his community,” says gubernatorial spokesperson Ann Dockendorff, “as he founded St. Anthony School in 1997 and continues to serve as a Board member. Additionally, Mr. Higgins is a volunteer with the White Mountain Tuition Support Foundation, for which he currently serves as President. He also has volunteered with St. Francis Parish on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, and has worked on several pro bono cases for White Mountain Apaches.”

Fleming, Jim

Jim Fleming, S.J., M.Div. ’94, executive VP of Wheeling Jesuit University, has been appointed the institution’s tenth president by the board of trustees, effective July 1, 2013. He will succeed Mr. Richard Beyer, who has decided not to seek a second term. 

“Fr. Fleming is ideally suited to serve as president of the university. He is a dynamic and visionary leader who possesses a keen knowledge of the university and, obviously, the Jesuit values on which it was founded and continues to operate.” said Mimie Helm, chairman of the university’s board of trustees.
She added, “In his three years as a senior member of the university’s administration, Fr. Fleming has forged close relationships with faculty, staff and students, as well as political and community leaders throughout the state. He has been instrumental in guiding the development and implementation of the university’s long-term strategic plan, while taking on key operational responsibilities. Fr. Fleming is distinctly qualified to build on the momentum generated in recent years and to lead the university’s continued growth as one of the nation’s best liberal arts institutions.” 
Fleming, 53, joined Wheeling Jesuit University in 2010 as the institution's first vice president for mission and identity and then chief of staff. He became executive vice president in 2012. He previously served as director of mission planning and assessment for Boston College and was a member of that faculty from 2000–2010.
At Wheeling Jesuit, he has overseen the university’s operations; focused on strategic leadership for program development, implementation and assessment; and led university-wide collaboration on new initiatives. He is the author of numerous articles and publications, and holds a doctorate in education policy, organization, measurement and evaluation from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a native of Lowell, Mass., and a priest with the New England Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
