Message From The Director

As Director of Governmental Relations, I am pleased to welcome you to the online home of the governmental relations office at Florida A&M University.  I hope this forum will provide you with an understanding of FAMU's involvement and interaction with policy makers and governments on the federal, state and local levels.  You will also learn about the University's commitment to the economic vitality and quality of life for the region and the state.

The primary role of the office is to work with state, federal and local policy makers to ensure that funding and policy initiatives reflect the needs of our university.   In addition, as one of the nation's leading universities, we have educational and research expertise that can serve governments and policy makers in their work.  Connecting this world-class expertise to governments at all levels is another major role of our office.

Finally, universities such as FAMU are critical to the future of Florida's economy.   Florida A&M University is committed to working to advance prosperity for the people of Florida and making a positive impact on the state's economy.
