Adrienne Mathews to Serve as Interim Dean, Behavioral and Social Science

A Message from Falecia Williams, President, West and Downtown Campuses

Please join me in congratulating Adrienne Mathews on her acceptance of the role of interim dean for behavioral and social science on West Campus through summer 2019.

Both a Valencia and University of Central Florida alumna, Adrienne’s credentials include a bachelor’s degree in anthropology, a master’s degree in political science, a pending Ph.D. in sociology and, perhaps most importantly, a demonstrated commitment to lifelong learning. Adrienne, a professor of political science and for the honors interdisciplinary studies track, has taught at Valencia since 2006. She also has served as division coordinator in Behavioral and Social Science for the past three years, a position which has established a strong foundation for assuming the role of interim dean.

In addition, Adrienne has served as advisor forΒ the West Campus chapter of the Model United Nations and regularly mentors students doing service learning and civic engagement internships. She serves on numerous collegewide committees and is a facilitator of the LifeMap Certificate professional development course.
