Patricia Gentile EdD, Higher Ed, 2009

President Emerita, North Shore Community College, Massachusetts
I enjoyed the doctoral program at UNL in Educational Leadership and Higher Education because it had the academic rigor I was looking for, a welcoming and helpful team of faculty and staff, and an online experience that allowed me to continue working full-time.  My dissertation preparation and committee members were superb and I’ve utilized what I learned in my resulting leadership positions in the community college sector.  My Ed.D. has not only given me entree into a presidential position, it prepared me for the challenges I face on a daily basis.  Thank you, Dr. Miles Bryant, Dr. Brent Cejda, Dr. Marilyn Grady and all the wonderful folks at UNL for believing in me.
