I have worked for almost a decade in higher education in both faculty and staff positions. As the Senior Associate Director of Praxis, I work closely with students, faculty, and community partners to provide community-based and experiential learning opportunities that are integrated into students’ academic coursework and grounded in our Center’s Civic Engagement values.
