Benedict College Announces New Dean of the School of Science and Engineering

Benedict College Announces New Dean of the School of Science and Engineering
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on July 06, 2022

Benedict College proudly welcomes Dr. Robert N. Garner as the Dean of the School of Science and Engineering. Dr. Garner comes to Benedict from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. At UIW, Dr. Garner served as Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. He is credited for leading his department in acquiring certification from the American Chemical Society and accreditation from the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

“We welcome Dr. Garner to the Benedict Family. I am confident that his extensive academic experience and collaborative leadership style will further amplify the excellence within the Science and Engineering program,” said Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, President and CEO.

Dr. Garner’s support for students led to his work as a co-PI on an NSF S-STEM grant that provided scholarships and professional development for academically gifted students with financial need.



His primary research is in inorganic photochemistry, an area in which he’s published research articles on the fundamental science and biomedical application of ruthenium complexes.

“Dr. Garner brings to Benedict a student-centered approach to teaching, research, and service that will support the high-impact practices that are needed for transformational learning experiences,” said, Dr. Janeen P. Witty, Benedict College Vice President for Academic Affairs.

In addition to his work in the sciences, Dr. Garner is an advocate of Honors programming and served as his previous institution’s Honors Council Chair, working across disciplines to restructure, strengthen, and add curricular opportunities for Honors students. A native of Starkville, Mississippi, Dr. Garner received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Jackson State University and a doctorate in Chemistry from The Ohio State University.
