TehQuin D. Forbes is the University of Florida’s Honors Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships Coordinator. He wears many hats in his efforts to work with internal and external partners, all to the ends of helping carry out the UF Honors strategic plan.

He works directly with prospective Honors students, their families, and colleagues both at UF and other institutions to usher a diverse group of individuals into Honors and guide accepted students’ transitions to campus. He also works closely on programmatic efforts to engage alumni of the honors program.

As a former UF Honors student himself, Dr. Forbes believes that Honors is great because the flexibility of the program allows for an experience as unique as each student. His personal Honors involvement included roles such as SHO Treasurer, Hume RA, Honors First Generation Director and Honors Special Event Intern. He studied abroad in Valencia, Spain in 2014 and holds a BA in Sociology from UF as well as a spot in the 2016 UF Hall of Fame.

Dr. Forbes received MS and Ph.D. degrees in Sociology from Florida State University. He researches and publishes on inequality issues in higher education and personal relationships.
