Frank Goodin is an Emmy Award winning independent film-maker from Jacksonville, FL. He currently teaches the core curriculum in the new Digital Video Concentration of the UNF School of Communication. His notable directorial work includes the Emmy winning independent documentary "The 904," and "Love Trap," an independent feature film that won Best Feature Film at multiple film festivals and has been distributed nationally by Showtime and Netflix.


Goodin also has a detailed and diverse history as a UNF Osprey. As a student in the early 90's, he wrote for the Spinnaker, was a leader in Student Government, and he was a founder of the Sigma Upsilon chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the African American Student Union (now the Black Student Union). Both student organizations continue to serve UNF students today. Trivia buffs might know that Goodin was also UNF's first Homecoming King.


As a UNF professional, Goodin has worked in financial aid and admissions, using the experience to shape the UNF Pathways To Success Foundation Scholarship program in the late 90's, which later became a national model for helping socio-economically disadvantaged students attend and graduate college.


Prior to teaching, Goodin worked in Enrollment Services to recruit academically high profile students to UNF, and later served as an academic advisor to Communication students. As an Instructor, Goodin has recently made key contributions to the Uncovering Jax project, an initiative to educate the Jacksonville community about important aspects of the city's rich cultural history.
