Terrence S. McTier, Jr.
M.A., Student Affairs, 2015
Interim Dean of Students at Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville
When I started the program as a Black male from Georgia, I was unsure of what to expect from a place like Lincoln, Nebraska. However, I can honestly say attending UNL and participating in the Student Affairs program has been extremely rewarding. In fact, I have to give credit to Dr. Stephanie Bondi who birthed the research idea into me as well as introducing me to the world of social justice, Dr. Corey Rumann who gave me my first research opportunity, and Dr. Elizabeth (Beth) Niehaus who mentally and physically prepared me for my doctoral journey today. As I finish up my doctorate, I realize the Student Affairs/Educational Administration program equipped me with the tools I needed to pursue faculty life post-graduate school.
