About Us

Dr. Charlie Dawes

Dean of Student Learning
Charlie is a native Floridian and a two-time Southeastern graduate, receiving both his undergraduate and master’s degrees here. He earned his Doctor of Ministry from George Fox University. After working in the local church for more than a decade, Charlie returned to Southeastern in 2008 to further pursue his passion for discipling and helping students discover their potential and purpose. He now serves the university as the director of First Year Experience and as an adjunct professor in the College of Christian Ministries and Religion. Charlie feels that Southeastern University has been a transformational experience in his life and considers it a privilege to continue to be part of its community and life-giving atmosphere. Charlie is married to his high school sweetheart, Nicole, and together they have two beautiful children, Caden and Hailey.
