Joél Orozco M.A., Student Affairs, 2015

Associate Director, César Chávez Cultural Center at the University of Northern Colorado

In comparison to other narratives from folks in other graduate programs, I feel the EDAD department was organized and all the way from interview days, funding for professional development conferences, mandatory case study competitions, were valuable experiences as the skills learned from those experiences have come handy in job interviews and day-to-day work decision making process.  I truly appreciated the flexibility and willingness from EDAD’s Chair for me to be able to shape my experience in the program when it came to course work. For example, ability to take a course from a different department and still have it count towards my graduation for credits. Also, I was able to secure a teaching position at the local community college and was able to work with my advisor and department chair to count that experience as a practicum for credit towards my credits needed for graduation.
