“Dr. Dumas embodies the enthusiastic, inspiring leader ship that is essential to the success and viability of Historically Black Colleges and Universities across this country. I know that, in many instances  the types of students that HBCUs generally serve are fundamentally different and thus the institutional approach to offering services must reflect this reality. I am assured that Dr. Dumas is capable of modernizing institutions of higher learning to sufficiently address the needs of 21st-century college students.”

“Across the country, colleges and universities serve as incubators for the cultivation of young minds and healthy individuals. The future of our communities is directly correlated to the success of family, church and education. Dr. Brandon Dumas identifies with the plight of our black males and recognizes that his achievements may serve as an example for others to follow. His approach to reach/save one parallels with those of our sororities EMBODI initiative. His personal philosophy, Christian principles and strong family values are evident in his professional decisions, as he seeks to develop the holistic student, realizing academics is only half the solution. I wholeheartedly believe in his ability to provide visionary, transformative leadership to institutions of higher learning.”

“It has been an absolute pleasure working for and with a visionary who possesses the innate talent to create, plan and implement versatile and student-success centered programming. Working with Dr. Brandon Dumas has given me wonderful opportunities to grow both professionally and personally mainly due to his ability to understand the complexities of HBCUs and the need for high-touch, data-driven retention practices. He has been such a great supporter and mentor, never wavering and always rational, allowing his staff to thoroughly and creatively implement new theory based programming. There is nothing like working beside a person who knows the answers before asking. Dr. Dumas is gifted, talented, passionate and considerate, always putting the needs of students, faculty and staff before his own. He is definitely a great asset to the HBCU family.”

“Dr. Brandon K. Dumas is the epitome of servant leadership. In my 30+ years of academic experience, I have rarely had the pleasure of interacting with an administrator who is more concerned with matters that directly impact students. To be specific, Dr. Dumas created ways to remove demarcation between students, faculty, and administration. He developed initiatives that not only enriched learning experiences for students but he also sponsored events to recognize the diligence and hard work of our faculty members. His combined efforts were revolutionary at Southern University and solidified the path forward to bridge the gap between Academic and Student Affairs.”
