Vice President for Student Affairs

Building and Sustaining a Culture of Care: Whatever it takes to support the individual success and well-being of every student

Cultural change is almost always a grassroots endeavor—starting in classrooms, hallways, advising appointments and nowadays, Zoom sessions. You, in your role, are a game-changer for students and their families. You literally have the opportunity every day to change the course of history for good. In his talk, Frank will share why you are a powerful agent for cultural change and why that power is too often overlooked. Let’s start a movement where care and hope are abundant.
