Avis Proctor, Ed.D.

Dr. Avis Proctor serves as Broward College's Vice President for Academic Affairs and North Campus President. Born in the USVI, she moved to Miami at a young age and quickly learned to channel her energies into learning and giving back to her community. In her early years, she became keenly aware and focused on how a quality education (or the lack thereof) has an impact on one’s life outcomes and destiny. As a higher education scholar, Dr. Proctor contributes to the professional discourse on leadership, research-based instructional strategies, progressive administrative practices, and strategic community engagement. She is also committed to building the STEM pipeline for underrepresented groups. Dr. Proctor has a great appreciation for the arts and community service and recognizes their transformative power. She currently serves on several boards including the Junior Achievement of South Florida @ Broward College, Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance among other nonprofit organizations. A 2012 graduate of the FLDOE Chancellor’s Leadership Seminar, Dr. Proctor was recognized as one of the 50 Most Powerful Black Professionals in Business and Industry for Broward County in 2014 and received the 2015 Community Servant Award from the American Society for Public Administration South Florida Chapter.
