Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration
I am pleased to welcome our new Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration Donnell “Hakim” Scott, MBA, PMP. Most recently, Hakim served as the Director of Finance and Administration for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Maryland. Prior to his term at the ACLU, Hakim held several financial and business administration roles at Howard University, so he is well-versed in the needs of academia.
At Howard University College of Medicine, Hakim served as the Principal Business Officer and Director of Finance and Grant Affairs, where he helped provide budget oversight and grants administration, among other tasks. He also held a number of other financial administration positions at Howard University, in addition to serving on a variety of university committees.
Hakim earned his MBA at Howard University and also obtained a Project Management Program (PMP) Certificate. We look forward to his leadership and skills being employed on behalf of the College of Education!
