“Not all those who wander are lost” -J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

  1. My long term goal is to be a Dean of Students. Ever since I realized that Student Affairs was the path for me, I knew that I wanted to be a Dean of Students. It is the combination of all the areas I worked in and loved during my undergrad experience.
    • How will I get there:
      • I will gain experience in multiple functional areas of student affairs so that I am more capable of leading.
      • I will obtain budget management and leadership experience.
  2. I will continue to treat students as valid holders of knowledge and teachers that I can learn from.
    • How will I get there:
      • I will meet with students one-on-one to discuss issues rather than through email.
      • I will encourage students to present on topics they care about and attend their polished presentations.
  3. I will be active within professional organizations.
    • How will I get there:
      • I will regularly attend and present at professional conferences.
      • I will volunteer for opportunities to assist professional organizations I belong to.
  4. I will persist in my education.
    • How will I get there:
      • I will regularly attend webinars and conferences.
      • I will obtain my PhD.
