Through my almost thirty-year career in higher education, I have thrived on the opportunities to mentor students. I enjoy working developmentally with college men and was the founder of Positively Achieving Leadership by Men in Society (P.A.L.M.S.), a group for college men at Assumption University. I consider the ability to unify individuals, whether inside or outside the classroom as one of my prime strengths. To create cohesive group, the articulation of a unifying expectations is necessary. As such, I organize groups, or students in ways that rely heavily on listening, and consensus building.
Through my doctoral program, I was prepared as a scholar-practitioner, which is essential in addressing the many difficult issues within higher education institutions by converting theory into practice. The culmination of the program resulted in my dissertation titled, Teaching healthy romantic relationships: An exploration of institutional strategies. The purpose of my study was to explore the factors associated with the healthy romantic relationship decision making of traditional-age college undergraduate students and what strategies are best for teaching about healthy relationships.
At Regis, I teach three courses in the higher education EdD program. Co-curricular engagement, Higher Education Law, and The History of Higher Education. Through these courses, students are prepared to think holistically about student’s success, and persistence within educational systems.
