The Student Experience Team

The Student Experience Team is comprised of individuals with an array of racial, ethnic, cultural and educational backgrounds, community connections and expertise. Together, we represent almost 150 years of professional experience in higher education, the non-profit sector and community-based organizations.

We are proud of our position as leaders in the field, skilled practitioners, community partners and innovators. Our ability to serve a broad swath of the student population, to innovate, to be responsive and to reach students where they are is achieved primarily due to the extensive student staff team we work with each year.
