The Administrative & Professional Collaborative (APC) is the representative voice for the Administrative & Professional employees of FSCJ.
In an effort to build cohesiveness, awareness and collegiality, each month we put a “spotlight” on one of our members. March’s Administrative and Professional Collaborative spotlight shines on Dr. Gary Killam, interim dean of career education at Downtown Campus.
Gary joined the College in September of 2015 as the associate dean of career education and was appointed as the interim dean in November. He came to us from St. Johns River State College where he served as the dean of criminal justice and public safety.
Gary has 32 years’ experience in law enforcement, serving as deputy chief for the Duval County School Police Department and as major with the Davie Police Department in South Florida. He is currently a reserve officer with the St. Augustine Police Department. Gary is also an adjunct faculty member at Nova Southeastern University and St. Johns River State College. He developed his passion for teaching as a police officer and continues to teach recruits in the police academy as well as college students.
Gary holds a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from Nova Southeastern University; a master’s degree in education from the University of Phoenix; a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Nova Southeastern University; an associate degree in police science from Broward College; and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
He enjoys woodworking, outdoor activities and most of all, spending time with family and friends.
Our spotlight shines on each campus/center at least once a year. Nominations for the spotlight may be directed to your campus representative or any officer.
