Atwood Memorial Center   |   Campus Involvement

"I enjoy the diversity amongst our students. I've had the privilege of working with students from all across the world and learned so much in doing so. I also am grateful for all the opportunities that St. Cloud State has provided me. I've really been able to grow professionally through the various roles that I've work in."

Heather Brown Director

Women's Center

"As a scholar-practitioner, I find that working at the intersections of direct support and evidence-based practice is critical to learner success. A university should not only support the learner by providing the services they need but also challenge the learner to make connections between what they are learning and their goals and dreams for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world. It’s an honor to work with the Women’s Center team to facilitate that for our students, and it’s an honor to learn from the students as well!"

"I love the people at St. Cloud State. The students are excited to learn and the employees truly care about every student and each other."

One of my favorite quotes is “We can do small things we GREAT love.” From Mother Teresa. We embody this! We all contribute in many ways, and do so with an abundance of love and care. My hope is that students come here and feel supported, valued, heard, and encouraged.
