• About Me

  • My Background

    Hello, and welcome to my ePortfolio! I'm Courtney, and I am currently pursuing my M.A. in Higher Education. I attended Colorado State University (CSU) for my undergraduate education and majored in psychology. During my time at CSU, I discovered my passion for higher education through peer-mentoring first-year Honors students and tutoring introductory biology. At DU, I hold a graduate fellowship in the Office of Career & Professional Development, where I advise students one-on-one and run the Career Closet, a service for DU students in need of professional attire. I am hoping to land a role in undergraduate learning programs or academic advising after I complete this degree, and I am looking forward to discovering the next steps in my professional journey. Thanks for stopping by!


  • Navigating the ePortfolio

  • The Higher Education department at DU conceptualizes "significant learning" in the program as occuring at the intersection of six learning outcomes:

    1. Foundational Knowledge: "Students will demonstrate foundational knowledge about higher education as modeled in the core curriculum. Students will demonstrate foundational knowledge about their specific interest area(s) (College Student Affairs; Public Policy and Organizational Change; and/or Diversity and Higher Learning)."
    2. Application: "Students will demonstrate a critical understanding of the values of diversity, equity and inclusion as exhibited by Inclusive Excellence and its applications. Students will demonstrate the ability to apply theory to practice."
    3. Integration: "Students will be able to connect and integrate materials from the curriculum, cocurriculum, and additional experiences as it relates to their personal and professional interests."
    4. Human Dimension: "Students will demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively with diverse groups and/or individuals in diverse settings. Students will express their personal and professional growth and development through critical reflection of their experiences in the program."
    5. Caring/Valuing: "Students will demonstrate the development of their personal and professional values."
    6. Learning How to Learn: "Students will demonstrate self-awareness and the strategies needed for continuing professional development."
