Dr. Carl Pettis

Dr. Carl S. Pettis is an associate professor of mathematics and chair of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Alabama State University.

Dr. Pettis was the first graduate of the Alabama Bridge to the Doctorate Program. He received his doctorate degree in mathematics from Auburn University in 2006. He is also a proud alumnus of Alabama State University (ASU). Dr. Pettis was awarded the Bachelor of Science degree (2001 Major – mathematics and minor – computer science) and the Master of Science degree (2003 Mathematics) from ASU.

Dr. Pettis is the principal investigator for two National Science Foundation initiatives at ASU, namely the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP), and the Alabama Alliance for Students with Disabilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (AASD-STEM). He is also the director of youth programs for the ASU Division of Continuing Education where he coordinates K-12 educational activities such as the National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) and the Summer Kid’s Youth College Adventure Program (SKYCAP). Dr. Pettis enjoys molding young minds and working with youth to enhance their STEM aptitude.

As a researcher, Dr. Pettis is a published author of several mathematical papers. Additionally, he was named the 2010 STEM Faculty of the Year by his colleagues and the students from the College of Science, Mathematics, and Technology.
