Welcome from the Dean
As the Dean of the Business and Technology School at Chipola College I wish to welcome you to our Chipola family!
To frame a little of my background, my doctoral degree is in business administration with a specialization in computer information systems. I have worked in higher education for more than twenty years and served as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force. I have been fortunate to have led consulting projects throughout the United States, where I was able to meet and work for President George W. Bush. Internationally, I have also led consulting projects in Singapore and in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where I had the opportunity to meet Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi who serves as the ruler of the Emirate of Ajman and a member of the UAE Supreme Council. I am thrilled to build on these experiences and to be a member of such an exciting Business program that serves our students and communities.
Over the years, Chipola College has built a reputation of producing outstanding students. The four year degree continues that tradition by preparing the students to be the business leaders of tomorrow. It is imperative we prepare our students in critical thinking skills to take on the opportunities of the future. Today's fast pace and ever changing environment, requires Chipola Business School to ensure students have the skills needed to embrace the focus of being life-long learners.
We, at Chipola Business School, must make sure we listen to the employers and give them the best students possible. My focus is to continue to expand the Bachelor's program and reach out to the community. We need to meet the needs of our students and also to make sure the students can and will live up to the needs of local employers. We will continue to work within the community by conducting business internships, seminars, and providing help to local businesses.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 718-2380. You may also contact the Departmental Staff Assistant for the School of Business and Technology, Katrina Griffin at (850) 718-2441. Our doors are always open. Please stop by. We are here to serve you!
