Dissertation Topic: The Relationship Between the Level of Engagement and the Development of Masculinity Identity Among Male College Students
"Each week I found myself looking forward to the rich, in-class discussions with my cohort. I came to cherish the variety of perspectives and personalities and would not have grown as much as I did without being part of that group."

The overall experience of students is based on a mixture of academic programs, student services, and social activities, including student clubs and organizations.In all of these activities, the Dean of Students works closely with staff in various campus offices, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, to promote a positive student experience.
The position involves policy development, crisis management, conduct process oversight, chair the behavioral Intervention team, ensure federal regulation compliance (i.e. Title IX), supervise several departments, strategic planning, and budgeting.
