Dr. Monique Collins’ life mission is to ensure Pensacola State College students are successful. She joined the Pensacola State family in 2001 as an academic advisor. Dr. Collins is now the college’s Assistant Dean of Student Services and supervises student registration and retention.

“The ultimate reward in my job is seeing students and their families at commencement. I have helped many of them personally over the years – so I have watched them grow. So, to see them basking in the excitement of graduation is always the ultimate reward for me,” she said.

An advocate of state and community colleges, Dr. Collins said the institutions are life-changing.
