Anderson.jpgSusan Anderson
University of St. Thomas

Susan successfully completed the Program and was awarded the Certificate of Completion at the Annual Conference in Orlando in October 2010. In the initial phase of the Program, Susan was particularly diligent in taking the time to fully and clearly articulate her goals and and is an excellent resource for following Program participants on how to go about that process. As she neared the end of her time in the Program, she said that the most valuable lesson she had learned through her ELP experience is that 'nothing is small,' noting the following example:

"One goal I set as an ELP participant was to simply submit a program proposal for the 2009 Region 6 conference. The program was accepted and turned from a concurrent session to a pre-conference session (for which I recruited two other colleagues, which provided for a very fun and valuable experience for all three of us). I became acquainted with the Region 6 leaders at the conference and was asked to be the Minnesota liaison for Region 6, and am also aligned to chair the 2012 Region 6 conference. I don’t think I would have thought to articulate “chairing a regional conference” as one of my ELP goals, but what started a small thing (a conference program proposal) blossomed into several professional opportunities. I’ve learned that it’s important to just get out there and be willing to do good work on small levels. When working with leaders/colleagues like those in NACADA, even those small efforts are noticed and will certainly allow for more opportunity/responsibility at larger levels down the road."

Susan's accomplishments include writing a book review for the Fall 2009 edition of the NACADA Journal and serving as a reviewer/reader for the 2011 NACADA Advising Administration Commission-sponsored monograph.  She has presented at number conferences, served on the NACADA Professional Development and Finance Committees, and served as hospitality co-chair for the 2013 Annual Conference.  She has served on the Region 6 Steering Committee and chaired the Region's 2012 Conference in Minneapolis.
