PROFESSIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Higher Education in the United States of America faces several issues and has become one of the hotter topics today. Issues of access to higher education institutions and diversity within these institutions are being considered now by higher education professionals more than ever. Furthermore, once students arrive to campus their safety and security on campus is being held to a greater level of scrutiny as well. These issues are widespread and are as challenging as they are broad. They affect almost every aspect of the higher education experience as student has at an institution. These issues, in part, are what fascinates me about the field and joining the profession of dynamic and curious higher education practitioners. Today, I am especially interested in understanding the way in which social contexts shape university structures and systems and as a professional I care deeply about ensuring students are making the most out of their time in college in positive and transformational ways.
