As Dean of the College of Business at Southern University, I
have developed the leadership skills to move the college
forward as a result of our strategic planning processes, to
achieve continuous improvement in the products and
services that we provide to our stakeholders.  Our college is
accredited by AACSB International -The Associate to
Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. We are determined
to remain innovative  in developing the types of programs
that will best serve our students, alumni, business
supporters and community.

As an economist, I have over 35 years experience in
teaching, research and service in this discipline.  In
1998-2000, I was involved with projects to strengthen the
economics education program at Southern University in
Baton Rouge, Louisiana.   This grant was funded by the
Morehouse Research Institute and the Ford Foundation and
involved curricula design and development and the
administration of new and improved methods for the
instruction of economics in the global economy.  One goal of
this effort,  was the  improvement of economic literacy within
the African- American community.

I have focused my research on resource allocation issues
and the educational performance of minority students in
economics.  I was selected as a Nissan Fellow in 1995 to
study entrepreneurship and participated as a Carnegie
Mellon Fellows,  Program Scholar in the Inter-university
Consortium for Political and Social Research in the
Summers of 1995, 1996 and 1997 at the University of
Michigan.  In 1997 and 1998, I served as the Co-Principal
Investigator on two Louisiana Board of Regents
Enhancement Grants for the College of Business.  
Presently, I am the Co-Principal Investigator  on a U.S.
Department of Education Title VI, Part B Grant, to Enhance
International Business Education at Southern University. I
am the Project Director for a grant from the U.S. Department
of Transportation concerning entrepreneurship training.

I was a participant in the Faculty Development in
International Business Program at the Daniel Management
Center, College of Business Administration at the University
of South Carolina in 1997. In 1998, I was a participant in the
Multi-City Study of Urban Inequality, sponsored by the Ford
Foundation at the University of Michigan.  In the Summer
1999, I was a participant in the Personnel Economics
Program at Stanford University. In Spring 2002, I was a
presenter at the NASDAQ IEM*IDEA Securities Market
Conference on Integrating the Iowa Electronic Market Across
Disciplines at an HBCU, held at the University of Iowa,
sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the
NASDAQ Stock Market Educational Foundation.


Member of the People to People Agricultural Economics
Delegation to the People's Republic of China in 1987.  In the
Summer 2000, I visited universities in  Ghana, Uganda,
Namibia and South Africa as part of our International
Business Education Project to expand trade opportunities.  
In the Spring of 2001 I visited Russia and Armenia as part of
a UNCF/IDP USAID project to establish a business school in
at the State Engineering University of Armenia. International
travel, especially to China, Russia, Armenia, U. S. Virgin
Islands and Africa have  provided me the opportunity to
develop a greater understanding of the role and importance
of higher education in moderating the economic and cultural
differences in the world community.
