I have been at the Univeristy for over 25 years, and have served as the Director of Learning Communities since 2018.   Since 2018, the Learning Communities Program has grown from 12 communities serving 200 students to 29 communities serving over 575 students.

My goal is to help students navigate college and reach their educational goals in a timely manner.  There is so much to be learned outside the classroom and building relationships is so important, that is why I believe that the Learning Community Program is such a great resource for students!
