Green-Powell resigns as VP

Patricia Green-Powell, vice president of Student Affairs, resigned effective Aug.31, according to a news release distributed Sept. 7 from the Florida A&M University Office of Public Affairs.

Green-Powell has agreed to remain at that position until October 31, 2005 or until another successor is named.

In Green-Powell’s letter of resignation addressed to Interim President Castell V. Bryant, she said: “It has certainly been a rewarding experience -both in terms of providing support programs and activities for students and interacting with the staff in the development and implementation of strategic planning initiatives for the Division of Student Affairs. As a result, it is with mixed feelings that I tender my resignation from the position of Vice President of Student Affairs.”

“Many opportunities have been afforded to me at this great institution, and

I am greatly appreciative. I believe that I have made significant contributions to Florida A&M University and that I have profited well from being a member of the Leadership Team,” Green-Powell said.

The University offered the current vice president another position at FAMU and Bryant sent Green-Powell a response letter after receiving her letter of resignation.

“Thanks for all of your contributions to the University and I look forward to your continued committed to our students and the University,” Bryant wrote in the response letter dated Sept.1.

Green-Powell has accepted a faculty position in the College of Education the news release stated.

“The University has benefited from Dr, Green-Powell’s expertise in the area of student affairs. I am confident that she will carry the same drive into her teaching position in the College of Education,” Bryant said.

In the press release, Green-Powell wrote, “I am looking forward to my next level of opportunity teaching in the classroom in the College of Education at the great University.”

Bryant will issue the current vice president a new contract with necessary adjustments.

Prior to serving as vice president of student affairs, Green-Powell was vice president for Student Affairs at Bainbridge College.
