I serve as interim director for the Student Multicultural center and oversee several initiatives that directly support the development and success of our students of color. These programs include the Academic STARS program, K/T Cultural Orientation program, K/T Mentor program, Male Empowerment Network (MEN).
I also collaborate with campus partners to on URS Male initiative, DEEDS cultural Affirmation sub committee as well as advise student organizations such as Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity inc. and Alpha Psi Lambda Fraternity.
Before coming to Kent, I worked at Goodwill Industries as a Job Development Specialist where I helped people with disabilities secure gainful employment. Then I went to Michigan State University (GO SPARTANS!) for my masters program. I worked as the Human Resources Graduate Assistant from 2013-2015. I graduated in May of 2015 and started with Kent in this position in August.
Favorite place on the Kent campus:
The Kent Student Center.
Best advice for students:
Make as many genuine connections you can while here. Also, make sure you take advantage of all the resources available to save on cost and stress. Finally, you are only in undergrad once, make it worthwhile!
