As the Dean of the School of Business & Technology 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 our 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. The fast pace and ever changing global environment requires Chipola School of Business & Technology to ensure students have the skills needed to embrace the focus of being life-long learners.
We, at the Chipola School of Business & Technology, must make sure we listen to all college stakeholders and provide them with the best students possible. My focus is to continue to expand the Bachelor's program and maintain our robust communications with all community leaders. We need to meet the needs of our students and also ensure our alumni 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. Our doors are always open. Please stop by. We are here to serve you!
