Director of Summer Session

Why I wanted to be a part of Stroud: I wanted to be a part of the Stroud Scholars Program because I've worked with the amazing students and schools in Colorado Springs, and I hoped to bring more of these intelligent and engaged students into the Colorado College community.

One piece of advice I'd give to high schoolers: Try to get involved in something outside of class, whether volunteering, joining a team or club, or a part-time job- these opportunities build your independence and a foundation of skills you'll use in college and beyond.

Why I wanted to be a part of Stroud: 

I wanted to be a part of the Stroud Scholars Program because I can see my high school self being a student who would have greatly benefited from the opportunities and experiences of the Stroud Program. I was fortunate to have worked with mentors who dedicated their time and resources in supporting me as a student and I would love to be able to pay that forward to another generation of leaders!

One piece of advice I'd give to high schoolers: 

Don’t try to involve yourself in everything at once! Pick one or two things to try or dedicate yourself to and take as much as you can out of those experiences. Give yourself grace to not be perfect and give yourself permission to say “No” and not over-commit to anything that spreads you too thin. Having the time and space to just sit there and do nothing is just as important for your mental health.

Pilot Year Committees

Departmental Involvement

While the Stroud Scholars Program now lives in the office of Summer Session, the Collaborative for Community Engagement (CCE) co-led the design of the program and the launch of a 2020 pilot, along with a large group of campus collaborators. The pilot cycle was developed and implemented by a shared leadership structure with representation from CCE, the Office of Admission, Education Department, Sociology Department, and Summer Session. In our cross-campus committee structure we have representation from K12 educators, faculty from diverse academic departments (German, Math and Computer Science, Physics, Sociology, Education, Religion, and Psychology), the Writing Center, Quantitative Reasoning Center, Colket Center, First-Year Experience, Student Life, the Butler Center, Financial Aid, Housing, and Events.
