Welcome from the Dean

Hello everyone,

As the Dean of the Business and Technology School for Chipola College I wish to welcome you to our Chipola family.

My PhD is in leadership and I have had a couple of businesses over the years. I have also done consulting work which has allowed me to work in the Czech Republic and Russia where I had the opportunity to meet Mikhail Gorbachev. I am thrilled to be part of such an exciting Business program and serving 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 the students have the skills needed today and 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 the employers. We will continue to work within the community by doing business internships, seminars and providing help to local businesses.

Please feel free to contact me at or (850) 718-2413. You may also contact the Business Department Assistant, Elissa Severson at (850) 718-2441. Our doors are always open. Please stop by. We are here to serve you.
