We the Student Affairs - the First Years leadership team would like to wish you a happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day. Just as he had a dream so must we for our students and for the future of higher education. Because he had a dream, I too can dream. One of my proudest achievements in my years as a young professional was the creation and expansion of this blog. Thank you to all of the readers who return day in and day out and to our leadership team members who work each day to make it better.
Student Affairs - the First Years
