Yvonne Robinson got in on the beginning of emerging technology when she switched from business education to teach one of Eastfield’s first computer programming courses. Though she’s remained in the same office for 30 years, her job and career field have evolved as dynamically as the field of computer technology.
She holds a doctorate in secondary and higher education from Texas A&M University-Commerce, a Master of Business Education degree from UNT and a Bachelor of Science in business education from the University of the District of Columbia in Washington, D.C.
Before joining Eastfield’s faculty in 1978, she served as an assistant business professor at Bishop College and a business instructor at Tarrant County Junior College, having first worked in Urban League programming and housing development in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Robinson is active in The Links Inc., an international organization of professional African-American women, for which she helps mentor young African women attending local colleges. She has chaired the group’s international fashion show to raise scholarship money. She has served as a mentor in Bryan Adams High School’s executive assistant program and attends numerous professional conferences each year on educational issues affecting minority students.
