Writing sample 

This course is a critical analysis of issues, trends and current topics in higher education leadership.


Final Case Study - Capstone Assessment

The final course in the degree requirements is a case study. The faculty gave me a scenario of a situation at a community college, and I had to identify the main issue and two minor issues. I had to provide research on the issues, and propose solutions to the problems. 

After completion of the paper, I presented my findings to a panel of three faculty members. Typically this is done in-person but I graduated in "Covid times" so we did it over zoom.  This provided me the opportunity to explain why I identified the specific issues and defend my choices in solutions to the problems.
