As an academic dean, I support students who live or did live in Wilson House and sophomores, juniors and seniors in Jarvis House residence hall. I am the administrative liaison for economics, romance studies, sociology, the Human Development certificate, the Latin American Studies certificate, and the Philosophy, Politics & Economics certificate. I also direct the Office of Student Returns and Duke's domestic exchange programs with Howard University and Spelman College. I oversee the First Year Seminars program, and serve as a member on the Global Education Committee.
I hold a B.S. (Tuskegee University), M.S. (University of Rochester), and Ph.D. (University of North Carolina-Greensboro).
