As a high school student, Dr. Fatoke earned a low ACT score (15), but was academically sound. Not willing to allow an ACT to define him, Dr. Fatoke pursued college and earned three degrees. His interest in supporting students came shortly after graduating from college, where he sought to give back to his community through academic and social engage-ment. Dr. Fatoke earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa in history and African–American studies, master’s degree in instructional leader-ship from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and doctoral degree in education from Chicago State University. Dr. Fatoke dedicates his time and energy extensively to the development of young people inside and outside of the classroom. Beyond the classroom, Dr. Fatoke is most proud of being a father and a husband.
