Get To Know Livingstone Caesar

What in your life drew you to your current field of study?

At a very young age, I had the passion to engage in work that could impact people and the environment in a positive way. Growing up, it dawn on me that being a professor offers a great platform to achieve the childhood dream of influencing people and society positively. Aside from growing up in a coastal community, I believe that the innate desire to groom responsible future business leaders largely influenced my decision to pursue a scholarship in the management and maritime business disciplines.

What do you hope your students gain from studying or working with you?

Develop the capacity to be independent critical thinkers equipped with the right mix of skills and qualities to positively impact their generation and the next one.

What are you passionate about in your personal life?

Musical instruments, singing, socializing, and community service.
