ORLANDO, Fla – Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law Professor Ann Marie Cavazos has been re-elected Faculty Senate president for a second term as the University continues to navigate the challenges posed by COVID-19.
“I am looking forward to building bridges, strengthening foundations, supporting faculty, and the mission of our great institution and the vision of President Larry Robinson,” said Cavazos.
The Faculty Senate, which includes representatives from every school and college within the University, is recognized by the University as an advisory body to the president on general matters that may affect the attainment of the University’s educational objectives.
As our nation continues to battle the pandemic, Cavazos said the faculty is doing its part in ensuring FAMU maintains its standard of “Excellence with Caring.”
“The faculty continues to work collaboratively and remains committed to creating a nurturing and safe environment for the education of our next generation of outstanding students,” she said. “I believe the heart of any great University is a great faculty and we will continue to maintain our relevance in an ever-changing world.”
Cavazos has been with FAMU Law for 17 years and teaches Evidence, Florida Constitutional Law and Professional Responsibility. Professor Cavazos received her juris doctor from Temple University School of Law.
Cavazos was re-elected as president in April by a majority vote and was unopposed. Cavazos previously served as FAMU Faculty Senate representative for the College of Law, secretary, then vice-president. The president also serves as the faculty representative on the FAMU Board of Trustees.
Along with teaching and leading the FAMU Senate, Cavazos has also been selected by the American Bar Association on Legal Education to serve as a site evaluator-clinician for Willamette University College of Law in the spring of 2022. Willamette University is a private school located in Salem, Oregon.
