As the Dean of Students, Carrie says there are many areas of the college that she will be focusing on this semester. Carrie will work closely with the Student Government Association (SGA), the Center for Leadership and Involvement (CLI), and Residence Life to increase student involvement in organizations and events. One part of this is promoting collaboration among organizations and departments to create high-impact experiences for students. She has also begun conversations with student leaders across campus to come up with new and exciting traditions to instill pride in and celebrate Wesleyan College. Carrie will also oversee the implementation of the new CEO Institute mentorship initiative scheduled for this spring.
