Jeffrey Morris is the assistant director of undergraduate programs for the Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance.

An Ohio native, Morris attended Jacksonville University, where he majored in accounting.  Upon graduation from JU in 1983 He was commissioned as a U.S. Navy officer. He became a pilot and flew a variety of helicopters during a 23-year Navy career. His military service included duty stations in Florida, Texas, California, Virginia, Rhode Island, The Netherlands and Indiana. He also deployed aboard various Navy ships (mostly aircraft carriers) to locations around the world.

After his last Navy assignment, Morris transitioned to a new career in higher education.  He served for nine years in the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business as the assistant director, Corporate Recruiting Services, for the MBA Career Development office. He was primarily responsible for directing corporate recruiting services for employers and recruiters. This included managing job posting and on-campus interviewing for both internship and full-time opportunities, as well as the MBA employer advisory board and employment statistics/reports.  In addition, he advised and instructed dozens of students on career development topics and issues. After Notre Dame, he returned to Jacksonville University as the associate director in the Career Resource Center, where he expanded his career skills and knowledge for four colleges (business, health care, arts & sciences and fine arts). During nearly five years at JU, he advised hundreds of students, managed all aspects of employer relations, and taught career and professional development courses.

In addition to his bachelor's degree in accounting from Jacksonville University, Morris earned an MBA from the University of West Florida and a master's degree in national security and strategic studies from the United States Naval War College.
