2019-2020 THOMAS MOORMAN FELLOWS
The purpose of the Thomas Moorman Fellowship Program is to provide intensive professional development experience, mentoring, and support to future leaders in the Association and the field of Student Affairs. The Program is funded by the TACUSPA Foundation.
Jordan Bryant, Lamar University
“Student Affairs research is my passion. Becoming the Thomas Moorman Research and Bench-marking Fellow has exposed me to an array of practitioners working on innovative and inclusive research projects within the profession. The experience of being a fellow is allowing me to become an active participant in crafting the future culture of student affairs.”
Shelby Hearn, Texas A&M University
"The TACUPSA Thomas Moorman Research and Benchmarking Fellowship provides a unique opportunity to experience board meetings in a professional organization and build relationships with professionals in higher education. This experience has been extremely insightful and continues to further my understanding of professional development organizations in higher education."
Karina Ogunlana, Texas State University
“For me, the fellowship means an opportunity to engage with seasoned professionals in the field about how to move forward our association. As decisions are made about how to create community, create a strategic plan, and continue to exist in a world alongside COVID, I am grateful to have been a part of the conversations. I have learned a lot from being in community with the TACUSPA Board. And I know the things I have experience and learned are going to assist me when I transition into future leadership roles.”
