BY JESSICA HANTHORN <mailto:jhanthorn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> 247-4537 Published May 17, 2005 HAMPTON -- The former city manager of Richmond is the new senior vice president and chief administrative officer at Hampton University. Calvin Jamison, 50, started May 2. He will oversee several university departments, including athletics, enrollment management, admissions, financial aid and development. advertisement<http://adserver.trb.com/ads/cube/advertisementht.gif> advertisement<http://adserver.trb.com/ads/cube/advertisementhb.gif> He's the highest-ranking vice president at the school and reports directly to President William Harvey. Jamison's city manager job was eliminated after former Gov. L. Douglas Wilder took over in January as Richmond's first directly elected mayor since the 1940s. Under the new system of government, Wilder took on much of the responsibility that formerly went to the city manager. Jamison couldn't be reached for comment Monday. Jamison became Richmond's city manager in 1998. He left office Dec. 29 with a $174,000 severance package, equal to 12 months' salary. Hampton officials didn't say how much he would earn at his new post. During Jamison's administration, Richmond experienced more than $3 billion in new development, three bond rating upgrades and a tax rate reduction. Harvey said Jamison would be an asset to the university. "He is a talented, effective administrator who has had significant experience in higher education, the corporate world and in running big-city government," Harvey said. Richmond City Council member Ellen Robertson said Jamison would do a great job at his new post. She praised him for staying on as city manager until the end and for helping the council work through the government restructuring, even though he knew that his job would be eliminated. "In a university setting, you're constantly dealing with elements of change," Robertson said. "It's good to have someone on board who will stick with you." Jamison received his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees from Virginia Tech. He spent 14 years in higher education, working as a faculty member and administrator at Virginia Commonwealth University and Virginia Tech, including a spot as assistant to the president at Virginia Tech.
