It is with great pleasure that the Center for Environmental Studies welcomes Mr. Gerron Scott as the Senior Academic Advisor in the Center for Environmental Studies. Mr. Scott has his Bachelors of Science in Biology, a Master of Education in Counseling (both from the University of West Georgia), and is currently working on his Ph.D. here through the School of Education focusing on Educational Leadership. He has four years of academic advising experience here at VCU in an allied field, Biology. In 2020, he was awarded the VCU College of Humanities and Sciences Leadership in Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Staff and Adminsitor Award and in 2021 received the VCU University Academic Advising Board’s Outstanding Advisor Award for 2021. Gerron’s experience outside of Biology is also considerable. He has served as both the VCU University Academic Advising Board Annual Conference Chair in 2019-2020, is currently serving as the Advising Board Vice-Chair, and is also the Region 2 Chair for the National Academic Advising Association’s Diversity, Inclusion, & Engagement Committee.
We are very excited to have Gerron on board and look forward to how his expertise may improve the advising experiences for students in programs associated with Environmental Studies.
