Why Siena: I love how Siena is focused on the development of the entire student! Through the use of our Franciscan values we frame an experience for our students to explore who they are, what they are passionate about and how they want to contribute to better the world. We do not graduate degrees but rather future leaders who are prepared to be global citizens and this is why I am proud to work at Siena.

Why Siena: I've experienced firsthand how Siena creates a welcoming and supportive environment for all as a former Graduate Intern in the Division of Student Affairs. This inspired me to come back as an administrator. One of the ways Siena achieves this is through our DORS values, which are all things I value in my personal and work life.
