How Lisa is making a difference in the College of Education:
It is my hope that I’m making a difference by enabling and inspiring students and those who I work with to be successful in their own efforts to make a difference. Sometimes that means branding, marketing and promoting our great programs, sometimes it means informing students about their academic pathways, sometimes it means creating a comfortable place in our office where students can decompress, and sometimes it means helping students get their cap and gown on straight at commencement. One year to the next there are always new projects and initiatives that keep things changing. It’s fun, it’s challenging and it’s rewarding.
