Robert Thompson

Ph.D. Student, Higher Education Administration

RobertThompsonRob is a full-time Ph.D. student who is currently enrolled in his first year of the Higher Education Ph.D. program.  After his service in the United States Army, he enrolled as a non-traditional student.  Holding a B.S. in Organization Management, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Palm Beach Atlantic University, he entered the business world.  After years of business experience, he sought a career change.  His plan is to use his Ph.D. to become a college professor. 

“After serving in the United States Army, I searched for a greater purpose.  Within a short time of walking the halls of the School of Education, it was immediately apparent that choosing the EPPL program was a wise decision.  The experience of entering the world of Academia, while intimidating, was made easier by an administration and faculty that are accepting, open, and kind.  I have yet to have a day that hasn’t made me a stronger intellectual.”
