Student Affairs Podcast
Gary has been actively involved in the student affairs profession for over the last decade as he has served in various capacities on three different campuses and as an executive director of a national fraternity. His primary interests involve Fraternity & Sorority Life, Leadership Development, Social Justice, and the underrepresented student experience on a college campus. He is also interested in the influence that popular culture and media has on the collegiate experience. Gary is alumnus of Eastern Illinois University (1999) and Indiana State University (2001) and looks forward to pursuing a doctorate in higher education.
Julie is currently an Academic Advisor for Emerging Media and Communication at the University of Texas, Dallas. Her student affairs experience/interests include residence life, programming, leadership development, and social justice issues. She received her M.A. in Student Development Administration from Seattle University and her B.A. in Psychology from Knox College.
This podcast is in partnership with The National Association for Campus Activities
