Alex Taylor, M.A.
Raised in sunny Tampa, Florida, I received my Bachelor of Science in Public Health from the University of South Florida. Determined to explore the Midwest, I decided to move to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to pursue a graduate degree within the College of Education at Marquette University.
After numerous informational meetings with mentors and professors, I became eager to work within the collegiate environment. I began to investigate the field of higher education by getting involved in a variety of functional areas within and outside of my university. I knew I wanted to be a resource for students and I was determined to do just that. Throughout my graduate experience, I was provided with the opportunity to work in Multicultural Affairs, Academic Advising, Housing & Residence Life, and Fraternity & Sorority Life. These experiences inspired my enthusiasm for higher education and student success. In 2014, I graduated from Marquette with a Master of Education in College Student Personnel Administration. As a result of my educational and professional experiences, my drive stems from helping students make meaningful life decisions.
Prior to joining the Wright State community, I served as an Assistant Director for the Center of Integrated Learning & Social Sciences Career Advisor at Earlham College. Located in Richmond, Indiana, Earlham College is four-year liberal arts institution. While at Earlham College, I had the unique opportunity to coach students through their personal and professional ambitions. I was also responsible for coordinating campus-wide career education programs while assessing student needs and promoting the value of liberal arts education.
As the Assistant Director of CLASS Workforce Development, I will be committed to building strong partnerships, implementing career-related programs, encouraging meaningful experiential learning opportunities, and coaching student learners as they explore their individual career goals. I am very excited to be a part of Raider Country and I am looking forward to making new connections within and beyond the university.
