"Fisk University has been privileged to attract some of the most talented faculty that has been credited with cultivating the minds of emerging scholars for over 150 years. We are excited to highlight the people that play an integral part in the successes of our students," said Kevin D. Rome, Sr., Ph.D., president of Fisk University. "We take pride in the accomplishments of our students, but also recognize that their achievements are a reflection of the commitment of our faculty and staff to help our students reach new heights."
