Terrence Mitchell at KramerworksAdministration and Leadership Studies Ph.D. student Terrence Mitchell has been very busy in 2013!

In February, he copresented (with ALS student Elizabeth Eckley) “Incorporating Appreciative Inquiry to Enhance Coalition Evaluation Results” at the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America’s 23rd annual Leadership Forum in National Harbor, Md.

In April, Terrence presented “The CREED College Readiness Program: Practical College Planning for African American High School” at the University of Akron Black Male Summit in Akron, Ohio.

In May, Terrence presented “Leadership Theory Application in an Increasingly Diverse Society; Can Knowledge of Leadership Theory be a Useful Tool for African Americans in their Quest for Administration Roles in Higher Education?” at the 26th annual National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education in New Orleans, La.

In response to a question about the driving force behind all of this travel and all of these presentations during the completion of his degree and his work with the nonprofit he manages (CREED College Readiness Program), Terrence said, “The presentations have raised my profile in my field and have given me an opportunity to practice using the tools that I have acquired through our studies in the ALS program.”

Terrence also wanted to tell his fellow students in the Administration and Leadership Studies Ph.D. program, “I am grateful for the preparation and the support I have received; the positive responses I had to the presentations really helped me understand how much I have learned in the ALS program.”

Congratulations Terrence on these exciting achievements!
