Renee Rowland
Biography:

Renee has been advising in University Division since September 2003.  She feels that by developing a relationship and being knowledgeable of campus services, she has the unique opportunity of forging a partnership with students, which enables the student to identify and attain educational goals. The more comfortable students feel with their advisor, the easier it is for them to honestly discuss various issues or concerns.  During her time in University Division, she has received national, state and campus recognition for her advising.  She has also presented at national, regional and state conferences.  Renee is a member of the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) and the Indiana Academic Advising Network (IAAN).
