My interest in this position is indeed motivated by the areas of expertise. Through out my professional career, I have committed to working on issues impacting specifically on students, faculty, and public Security and Safety.

I also served as an instructor as Police Officer- Sergeant in Academic Institutions. Communities, university campuses, student affairs, faculty & staff and the public
For more than fourteen years, I have worked as a Special Police Officer and as graduate student in the Howard University Campus Police Department in Washington DC, where I have used my Police Scientific Experiences, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Conflict Resolution skills, along with my Law Enforcement/Criminal Justice experience, my Sociology/Social work-Case Management to resolve differences and conflict among students without resorting to violence.

From 1997 to 1999, I represented Howard University Campus Police Department to assist in the provision of teaching police officers the processes of mediation and conflict resolution to reduce the threats of suicide and suicide among police officers and students. During my services at Howard, I have used the diversity of my professional and personal experiences to convey message to students. Over the years, I have given orientation presentations to incoming Howard University Law students about the essence of cultural diversity, safety and security at Howard University in general and the Law School in particular.
I have vigorously engaged in Working from a national and an international perspective with people, children, women, men, out of wars without out hope. I have served in numerous national and international organizations to create an avenue for peaceful resolutions with an alternative dispute resolution mechanism as a back up plan.

Because, as expressed before, that scholastic objective is achieved through commitment of providing one-on-one interaction, strong instructional leadership, class presentations, and high expectation for success for all students, frequent monitoring of students progress and providing effective research methods to facilitate new innovations. I have always applied these philosophies in all of my life’s worth and I have been successful in accomplishing my objective. I have always encouraged my students as I do in administration, to acquire the knowledge and develop the skills and work habits necessary to enable them to become productive members of society and the global community.
I believe that I have the leadership qualities for any task. I am a visionary that will enhance the department’s mission and objective.
