Derrel Bryan, Ed.D.
Dean of Education
Assistant Professor of Education
I believe in building relationships with students in order to establish an atmosphere of mutual respect and integrity represents the cornerstone of learning. Every student brings unique personality and character traits to the classroom. No matter the instructional delivery model (virtual classroom, face to face or hybrid), my role is to provide a safe environment within which students feel challenged and encouraged to express authentic and innovative ideas as a measure of learning.
I accepted a full-time position with Fla. Southern College in March 2019, and continue in that assignment teaching online courses in the Educational Leadership Ed. D. program. In addition, I chair ten Doctoral committees for dissertation students.
My wife, Marci, and I recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. We have two children, Derren and Darci, and five grandchildren.
