Alan A. Arroyo came to Regent University in 1986 as Director of Academic Services and Assistant Professor of Education. He established the university's distance learning program in his capacity as Dean of Extended Learning. He also established the university's conference and seminar department as the first director of conferences. Dr. Arroyo has served on every steering committee for reaffirmation of accreditation since the first SACS reaffirmation visit in 1989. He was a chief architect for what is now called the Center for Teaching and Learning, Regent's major faculty development arm.

Dr. Arroyo has served as dean of the School of Education since 1996. During his time as dean, the school has grown from 100 students to over 800 full-time students. The annual revenues have grown from $1 million to $7 million. The non-degree program student enrollment has grown to over 250 students, from about 50 students in 1996. The quality of students has increased steadily as well. Recently, Dr. Arroyo co-directed several projects funded by the United States Department of Education to train educators on how to teach character in public schools. He has co-authored over 15 books and articles ranging from dealing with school discipline issues to meeting the needs of students with disabilities. His current research interests are in the areas of leadership, character education, and building resilience in youth. Dr. Arroyo co-edited The Secret Kingdom for Educators, which will help educators tap into the kingdom of God as they go about their day-to-day activities as teachers and leaders in public, private, or home-school settings.

Before coming to Regent University, Dr. Arroyo was a teacher and administrator in public schools. He specialized in Special and Alternative Education. Dr. Arroyo continues his contact with public and private school systems by forming partnerships with them. The faculty, with Dr. Arroyo's encouragement and support, also has involvement with national professional organizations as well as state and federal education agencies.
