In my role at Alma, I get most excited when...

I am able to experience students willingness to step outside of their comfort zone in order to experience the world from another’s perspective.

What I love most about Alma College is...

is that is a small school that offers diverse opportunities for students, faculty and staff inside and outside the classroom.

I chose to work at Alma College because...

I wanted to be in a place in which I would be able to challenge and support student growth.
