“Our scholars inspire me every day! They are my “WHY” behind the work. In enrollment, we measure nearly everything we do but behind every metric, there is a Volunteer whose life will be changed by the education they receive at this great university. I believe the college experience is transformational and that our work changes lives. And, the scholars we serve make our campus community vibrant and alive and it is rewarding to be a small part of their journey. I often tell people I have the best job in the world – I get to come to college every day!”
