Carol Randel “When it came time to choose my path after high school, I was lucky enough to have a support system that allowed me the space and resources needed to nurture my strengths. As an undergraduate student, I chose to attend an institution with a small student-faculty ratio. During this time, I had a faculty member serve, as both my personal and professional mentor, and I believe it was this level of personal attention that truly helped shape my goals and my perspective on life. So much of why I joined this profession was to recreate this level of community at a larger institution because I, first hand, have seen the impact that forging meaningful relationships has on our student’s sense of belonging and ultimately their general success.”
