Jeremy Williams, Ph.D. student, Higher Education and Student Affairs
Serves student veterans
• What is your area of research or scholarship? The focus of my research and scholarship is college student civic engagement and student military veterans.
• In simple terms, why does this research matter? As a military veteran who is still actively serving in the army and with the College of Education’s I-SERVE program, civic engagement and public service represent excellent ways for me to encourage college students to get involved locally, nationally, and globally to help improve our world. Though I have chosen the military as my form of service, students should be made aware of the many wonderful ways to participate in public service.
• What is your degree program and expected graduate date?
Ph.D. in Higher Education and Student Affairs, with an anticipated graduation date of May, 2018
• Hometown: Anoka, Minnesota
• Faculty mentor/advisor: Dr. Cassie Barnhardt, EPLS, College of Education
• What are your career goals? I would like to serve twenty years or more in the military, become a college administrator, and eventually a college president in the United States or a State Department director of an Embassy abroad
