Dean's Welcome


It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to join the outstanding #RattlerEducator alumni spanning across the globe from the great Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University family! I am excited to serve as dean for the first established college at FAMU and welcome you to embark upon this journey with our college. The possibilities are endless here in the College of Education, picture yourself as a change agent, motivator, leader, innovator and educator! We are here for you and this is the place to be to start your journey and push your dreams forward.


This year we are laser focused on six vision strategies which align with our university mission, vision and values. I have shared these with the faculty in the College of Education and we are committed to working tirelessly to achieve them.

As you know, we Rattlers will Strike, Strike, and Strike again!


I look forward to seeing you on “The Hill”! Please feel free to follow our social media and reach out to us to learn more information about our programs.

Together we will forge the way for the FAMU Rising. Thank you for being a partner in this journey!
