What drew you to SNHU?
The focus on student success and also the overall quality of the liberal arts programs and courses is what drew me to SNHU. The liberal arts areas are very robust. I saw it as a good opportunity to take that vision forward and help students understand that general education isn’t something students just get through, but that it is going to be relevant in their selected careers.
How have you seen our efforts transforming students’ lives?
It started with a concentrated effort to look at our 100- and 200-level course work to make sure there are opportunities for students to revise their work, resubmit assignments and focus on the learning. If you have the opportunity to revise based on constructive feedback from your instructors, you develop the skills necessary to succeed.
You’re a professional artist as well; what kind of work do you do?
My collages incorporate digital and mixed media on paper, wood and canvas. I re-contextualize the narrative imagery within my experience and to a collective past, a wish fulfillment of stories that speak to our underlying belief in love, a guiding force to our destiny, and daydreams of wants and desires.
