The Voorhees College Division of Institutional Advancement and Development (IAD) introduces a new vice president and chief development officer, Dr. Prince Brown. 

Brown said he is extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity to join Voorhees College as its chief development officer. “I am confident that, under the leadership of President W.

Some of Brown’s responsibilities include advancing the institution’s mission, goals, and strategic priorities by building, strengthening, and sustaining relationships with Voorhees constituents. 

Evans said in such unprecedented times, Voorhees must do everything it can to press on and elevate. “I believe Dr. Brown has the capabilities and skillset required to manage the pandemic-challenges associated with IAD operations today successfully,” Evans said.

Brown earned a bachelor’s degree in speech and theatre and a master’s degree in public administration from Albany State University. He earned a doctorate in interdisciplinary studies from The Union Institute and University. 

He is a member of the planning committee for My Brother’s Keeper and the Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority Annual Health Conference. Also, Brown serves on the Board of Directors for the Love Jones Foundation. 

Additionally, he is a member of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., and a life member of the Albany State University National Alumni Association.
