Greetings and Welcome from the Ybor City Campus Student Services Dean
an honor and privilege to assume the role as leader of the Office of Student
Services. I am excited to become a member of the Hillsborough Community College
family at the Ybor City Campus. HCC is a thriving and dynamic higher education
institution that serves a diverse community. I am eager to serve as a proactive
agent of change at HCC as it relates to imparting my passion for student
advocacy and success.
following is a list of my immediate initiatives:
of customer relations and implementation of a student-first approach within the
engagement and satisfaction by streamlining the delivery and efficiency of student
practices related to improved accessibility and professionalism of the staff
and cooperation with academic affairs and other campus entities
goal of the Office of Student Services is to support the successful learning
outcomes for our students. I believe we are lifelong learners - education is a lifetime
process. Booker T. Washington once said, “Few are too young, and none are too
old, to make the attempt to learn.”
committed to facilitating the learning process and development of our students.
As an education professional, my philosophy and mission is to positively shape
and affect individuals through better education. I chose the profession because
education is the most relevant avenue for anyone to elevate themselves in our
society. More than just upward mobility, education has the power to expand the
scope of a person’s ambition. My vision for the Office of Student Services is
to comprehensively support the holistic educational experience.
quality educational experience is a right, student services staff will be
proponents of fulfilling that right. We will strive to provide every student
with superior customer service and positive interactions that predicate
satisfaction, retention, persistence and student success. The sum and value of
education is not confined to a classroom. The value of knowledge and training
transcends the walls of buildings, expands past the boundaries of any campus,
and speaks to the development of successful people from all walks of life.
Regardless of your station in life or your beginnings, access to a quality
education can serve as a platform to wherever, whatever and whoever you wish to
forward to serving you and contributing to the mission of Hillsborough
Community College at the Ybor City Campus. I encourage you to say hello as I
will consistently visit the various beautiful areas around our campus. I enjoy
interacting with students and obtaining firsthand feedback in an effort to improve
our services. My door is open and I am always available to serve you. GO HAWKS!
