In 1998, I graduated from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI with my Masters of Education in College Student Affairs and Leadership, which is now called Higher Education Administration. My thesis examined the Freshman Seminar program at Grand Valley State University on the student satisfaction of the instructors. The focus was on the student satisfaction with the graduate instructors in relation to the faculty and the satisfaction of first-year graduate instructors when compared to second-year graduate instructors.
In 2013, I successfully defended my dissertation at Old Dominion University in Higher Education Administration. My dissertation, entitled “A Comparative Analysis of Fraternal Chapter Director Education Programs and Current Issues of Undergraduate Students,” examined the educational programs provided by the Headquarters of North-American Interfraternity Conference organizations to their alumni volunteers who work with the local chapters and if those programs were discussing the current issues facing undergraduate students.
