It is for this reason that being able to help coordinate diversity initiatives, promote personal and social development for students and foster a welcoming environment by creating a culturally diverse and inclusive community while collaborating and educating others on campus.

Tiffany is a highly detailed person and truly believes that her counseling background, experience and campus involvement can be a great benefit for students and staff to structure opportunities for students and the Division to reach their goals.
