My College:

Welcome from the Dean of Students


Hello Embry-Riddle Families,

I want to welcome you on behalf of the Daytona Beach campus. We look forward to supporting our Eagles and working with you as partners in this educational journey.

It’s my sense of community, as an alumna and 20-year employee of Embry-Riddle, which drives my approach to working with students, faculty, staff, administration, and families.

In our campus community, we want to be respectful of others, giving of our time, and open to new and exciting experiences. We recognize the unique attributes of students and that each person brings something valuable to our campus. We can learn from each other and share our diverse perspectives and backgrounds.

Although academics are a priority, let’s work together to encourage students to participate in various events, activities, and offerings that can only enhance their career potential and build their connection to our community. Ask them to compete on an academic-focused team, cheer on the Eagle Athletics, join one of the 200+ student organizations, and enjoy (safely, of course) the college experience.

Through Student Affairs — including Career Services, Center for Faith & Spirituality, Counseling Center, Health Services, Housing & Residence Life, and Student Engagement & Student Union — we offer resources and support in the areas of career preparation; leadership; living learning opportunities; and the wellness of the mind, body, and soul.

Families, it’s important to keep the lines of communication open with your Eagle, both to help them through their college careers and to encourage their independence as they work through challenges.

As the Dean of Students, I have the amazing opportunity to advocate for and support students while challenging them to be the best people and professionals they can be. It’s a unique position to be in and one that I commit myself to each day.

Thank you,

Lisa S. Kollar
Dean of Students
