Living on campus is a weird thing to do as a graduate student — you’ve already 'done' the undergraduate dorm thing and living in a residence hall can feel childish in some ways. One of the nice things about Clark University's graduate housing is that during the academic year, you are not assigned to a room in a traditional building with a long hallway, shared bathroom, and no kitchen. Only private, single-use bathrooms for you, here on out!
The past few weeks surrounding graduation have been filled with a range of emotions — sadness, nostalgia, appreciation, excitement, and fulfillment. Just two weeks ago, I graduated with a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from Clark University’s Accelerated B.A./Master's degree program.

I recently had the privilege of being interviewed by the Worcester Telegram and Gazette regarding my educational and career path. Perhaps most people assume that the pathway to a dean’s role at a selective private research institution like Clark University is a predictable trajectory. It is not. Most of my colleagues have a great deal of work diversity in their background. Some came to their current role by way of science fiction literature, while others came to their roles via the study of music or geography. What we all share is our common experience in obtaining our credentials. Our world view and our career pathways vary a great deal.
For many students, walking into a large room full of people you’ve never met conjures feelings of dread. There’s a level of anxiety that accompanies fear of awkward conversations — or worse, uncomfortable silences.
