Prounouns: he/him/his firstname.lastname@example.org
As the Associate Director of Residential Life, Brian provides leadership for educational initiatives in Residential Life and oversees the recruitment, selection, and training of Community Leaders through a dynamic team of live-in professional staff. A first-generation college student, he enjoys helping students learn, grow, and find their way at Colgate. Brian graduated from the University of Delaware with an Honors B.A. in English and M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration and later from the University of Oregon with a graduate certificate in Nonprofit Management and M.Ed. in Counseling, Family, & Human Services with a graduate specialization in Prevention Science. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Curriculum, Instruction, and the Science of Learning at the University at Buffalo. Brian enjoys the peace and quiet of Central New York and has previously lived in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Oregon, and Florida. In addition to his major in college, Brian engaged further in the liberal arts through minors in Spanish and vocal performance; his love of music has allowed him to perform in choirs all over the world. When he's not listening to a Broadway show on repeat, you can find him curled up with a science fiction or fantasy novel (Neil Gaiman, anyone?). Feel free to reach out to Brian with questions about your living-learning experience, the Community Leader position, or any questions or worries you might have about living at Colgate.
