Daytona Beach is known for many things. It’s the home of NASCAR’s Daytona 500. It’s considered to be “The World’s Most Famous Beach.” But it’s also the home of more than 4,500 undergrads and 500 graduate students from 50 states and nearly 100 countries getting a top-flight education at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Embry-Riddle has been home to me for the past 17 years, and I’ve been honored to play a part in its growth — from being a champion of collegiate flight training through my work with both the FAA and Congress to helping the University develop the nation’s first Ph.D. program in aviation.
Now as Interim chancellor and CAO, I’m extremely excited to be able to share my experience and help lead this campus and its stellar faculty, staff and students toward the future.
But our vision for the future does not belong solely to me. It comes from all of us.
It comes from our faculty and staff who share the knowledge they’ve gained from decades of industry and higher-learning experience with our students to ensure that graduates will be better prepared than the competition in the workforce.
It comes from our student athletes who not only strive to make A’s in the classroom, but put up impressive numbers on the fields and courts as well.
But most importantly it comes from our students who join together to excel in our 26 undergraduate degrees, 14 master's degrees, and five doctoral degrees and then join the network of nearly 120,000 alumni who will support you throughout your working life.
Together, we can amplify the greatness that already exists at this campus and draw upon that to make our future even brighter.
Once an Eagle, Forever an Eagle.
