Ep. 130 – Florida A&M University ‘Boldly Striking’ Through Academic Excellence and Innovation, Dr. Shawnta Friday-Stroud, Dean, School of Business and Industry

Tallahassee has a long-running list of assets and accomplishments, but there’s one that should make the whole community proud. Florida’s Capital City, as of last year, is home to the #1 Public HBCU in the country: Florida A&M University. U.S. News and World Reports awarded FAMU this top position as well as ranking them 103rd of all public universities, a 13-spot jump from the previous year. 

In 2022, Florida A&M University launched a five-year strategic plan, ‘Boldly Striking’, with a goal to elevate performance and position FAMU to become a top 100 public institution. They set ambitious objectives through Student Success, Academic Excellence, Leveraging the Brand, Long-Term Fiscal Health and Sustainability, and Organizational Effectiveness and Transformation, with a plan to exceed all expectations. With application numbers setting new records each year, it’s clear the word of Florida A&M University’s achievements has already started to spread. 

On this week’s episode of the Tallahassee Business Podcast sponsored by MillCreek Financial Consultants, School of Business and Industry Dean and Chamber Board Member, Dr. Shawnta Friday-Stroud joins us to update us on the continued success and goals for a transformative future.
