In this week’s episode of Marketing Live we’ll be speaking with two campus administrators who work day-to-day to identify and cultivate student leaders on campus. We’ll explore the challenges of recruiting diverse leadership and we’ll discuss ways student affairs professionals can identify underrepresented leaders. The participants will also talk about ways they can help student leaders grow during their time on campus, and conflicts that may inherently arise during that growth. Both participants will bring stories from campus and offer insights on the future of student affairs.

I received my degrees from Indiana University and Vanderbilt University (and my heart is split equally – Go Hoosiers! Go ‘Dores!). Anything else you want to know? Feel free to contact me.
