Hi, I’m Millinda. I’m the Director for Academic Programs and Experiential Learning. My role is to design, deliver, and assess courses and programs that create communities for students to explore, learn, and grow personally, professionally, and academically. My hope is that all KU students leverage their time at KU to create relationships, skills, and knowledge that will allow them to succeed.

My favorite job is being a mom to my inquisitive daughter and my ornery Labrador Retriever.
