I am a current senior university administrator and political science professor with primary responsibility in diversity and inclusion strategic planning on the college campus. My cabinet responsibilities involve institutional pursuits in intercultural learning, development, engagement, and with multicultural access. As an office, we conduct workshops, program, and train a host of university constituents on the merits of inclusive excellence. In the classroom, I teach courses on domestic politics, globalization, and international relations.
I was born in Ghana, raised in several West African countries and completed all post secondary education in the United States. My B.S. is in Economics and Finance from the University of Indianapolis (2005), and both my M.A. (2008) and PhD (2013) degrees are from Southern Illinois University- Carbondale, specializing in Political Science with concentrations in global politics, international relations, and research methodology.
My journey in higher academia has led me from a full-time member of the faculty to varying university leadership positions on the college campus. As a Christian academic with a heart for community- I strive to use my own experiences and testimonies to further the work the Lord is doing on college campuses and in surrounding communities. My earthly calling and mandate on the college campus is to create "ambassadors for Christ" who respect and give dignity to all who they encounter regardless of "tribe, nation, and tongue."
