Leadership: If not you who? Why should I be a leader? What's in it for me? So a move from doing it because you want to be a leader to what does it translate into the world of work.
Mary-Alice Ozechoski has 24 years of higher education experience, and has worked in, or supervised, 15 functional areas of student affairs and is the first to admit that she is not what students and families expect when they meet a Dean of Students.
"I have big hair, big ideas, big dreams for you, and a big heart" Mary-Alice tells students during freshman orientation. "I believe it's not important whether or not you get into college, but that you get out of college by walking across the graduation stage with a diploma. My job is to do everything that I can to assist you in reaching that goal."
This former Dean's charisma, wit, and knowledge of the field have had a noticeable impact on various campuses. Increase of retention, creating leadership retreats, creating comprehensive orientation programs, establishing, Freshman Year Lecture Series to collaborate with faculty and creating a minortiy student mentorship program are pieces that create a unifed whole.
In addition to her interactive leadership programs examining the styles and componants of leaders she presents Parents 101- how to let go of your college freshman.
For transitions from student to workforce- what are the skills you need for better job and life placement. What you need to be able to give up to attain your goals. Looking at what works for you in college be it physical adornments to texting in shorthand, to intimate details on social media, Mary-Alice will help whittle down and expand the useful from the wasteful.
