Alanka Brown has been selected as the new president at the Eduardo J. Padrón Campus

Brown, whose first day was Aug. 26, will offer administrative support for academic affairs, student services, learning resources, campus information technology, and campus administration.

“I will work astutely with our campus teams to ensure that our students’ academic and support needs are heard, understood, and addressed in a timely manner,” Brown said. 

Most recently, Brown served as vice president of academic and student affairs at the City Colleges of Chicago’s Wilbur Wright College.

She previously served as associate vice president and dean of academic affairs at Frederick Community College in Maryland. In 2012, Brown served as district director for academic readiness at Miami Dade College, where she designed early learning and pre-college initiatives for the Student Achievement Initiatives office until August 2014. 

Brown earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University in 2002. She has three masters degrees—one in international affairs/international political economy from Florida State University, and two from Nova Southeastern University in public administration and management and marketing.

She also has a doctorate degree in higher education administration from Nova. In addition, Brown has two graduate certificates—one in law and policy education from Nova and one in project leadership from Cornell University.

“I look forward to helping students at the Eduardo J. Padrón Campus achieve their dreams,” Brown said.
