Dr. Robinson is full of enthusiasm for the road ahead. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic he continued to show up every day, roll up his sleeves, and do what was best for students, faculty, staff, and the community.
“Leading during the pandemic has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,” Dr. Robinson says. “As I work every day to make WSSU better, it’s my job to be at the center of the storm — and there is real peace and calm to be found there.”
Dr. Robinson is also grateful for the progress WSSU has made outside the classroom as it moves to a paperless campus, with more efficient administrative processes. Especially during the pandemic when in-person handoffs have not been possible, going digital with Adobe Acrobat DC has helped WSSU keep moving forward.
“The transition to online learning can be a slow process in higher education,” he says. “That’s why we’re glad to have an amazing partner like Adobe, who we can bounce ideas off and find ways to use technology to bring the online learning experience to life.”
For the students at WSSU, that commitment to progress can be life changing. “Everything we do is in service of students, and we want to make sure we’re giving them the opportunity to soar,” says Dr. Robinson. “When students attend WSSU, they have the power to change the trajectory of their lives and their families’ lives, and that helps close the wealth gap in this country — one person at a time.”
