We are a community of educators that work to help our students to succeed through providing one-to-one mentoring through student/faculty research within all of our areas of expertise.
It is with great enthusiasm that our faculty in hospitality, marketing, economics, and supply chain have joined together to officially form the Department of Commerce in the College of Business. Our faculty include award winning teachers, research scholars published in the top journals, and faculty that embrace service for the benefit of our students, UWF, and our Pensacola community.
