What does the Student Affairs mission of Engage, Empower, Enrich mean to you? 

To me it means fostering a community of networks on and outside of campus that include support and care, resources, and opportunities for and about the whole student. It means providing guidance, programs and services, and experiences that encourage and bolster their well-being while pursuing their educational and career goals.

 

What is your favorite part of your job?

Helping students learn to maneuver through their unique student experience and seeing them in their cap and gown at Commencement.

How do you feel your department makes an impact on students?

Military-Affiliated Services is a hub for veterans, active duty, reserve service members, and their dependents where they can find support, guidance, and camaraderie as they pursue their educational goals. UNCG continues to be recognized as a Military-Friendly School and Best for Vets College, among other accolades.

How would you describe UNCG to a prospective student or employee?

UNCG is a power-packed institution with national recognition and global partnerships. UNCG is constantly evolving to remain competitive as a top institution with its academic programs and attention to social awareness issues. There are many opportunities for students to find their passion and even achieve their dream job. The administration, faculty, and staff are committed to providing an engaged community to make that happen.

What are you most proud of during your time at UNCG so far?

I am proud to work with my phenomenal colleagues, Brad Wrenn and Eduardo Pinero, and with our military students, who are amazing. It is an honor and a pleasure to work with those who serve.

UNC Greensboro has a proud legacy of embracing veteran students dating as far back as the Woman’s College alumnae returning from service as WAVES, WACS, and nurses in World War II. Today, we strive to create a welcoming and constructive atmosphere for one of our nation’s greatest resources: our veterans. To learn more about Military-Affiliated Services, visit their website
