Dean’s Welcome

Hello! I have the distinct pleasure of serving as the dean of the College of Education at Alderson Broaddus University. I lead an exemplary team of people as we prepare you to be the teachers for today and tomorrow.

Our faculty are the reason why our graduates are sought after by school boards locally, statewide, and nationally. Our team of instructors care deeply for each and every one of our students. It is not uncommon to see students in faculty offices discussing both course content and life in general, just taking the opportunity to chat. Our doors are always open.

Our team also looks forward to the many social events we host for the students in our college. We look forward to meeting you and helping you ease into our family as we see you in our courses to prepare you for the various roles you will play as teachers.
