On behalf of the entire FAMU Community, I’d like to extend my condolences to the family, friends, and former faculty, staff, and students of SBI Dean Emerita Sybil C. Mobley, Ph.D.

Dean Mobley was indeed a treasure to the University, and her passion, professionalism, and dedication to the success of our students have been felt across not only the campus but also the entire nation.

 Because of her tireless efforts, FAMU business students are highly sought after by the nation’s leading Fortune 500 companies, as well as the state and federal sectors. The processes, procedures, and programs she put in place while serving as dean and building the SBI “Force,” have been emulated around the world.

The life she lived is an example of perseverance that will never be forgotten.
