Dr. Robert Yancy

In 1986, Dr. Robert Yancy founded the School of Management at what was then Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) where he became the first African-American Dean of a business school at a predominately white institution within the state of Georgia. As Professor Emeritus, Dr. Yancy combines his experience in education, business, and community advocacy to positively affect the metro Atlanta area. Dr. Yancy chairs SCORE Atlanta where he offers free business advice to the community and, as a member of the Atlanta Chapter of 100 Black Men, supports education for young African American males.
