I am Michael “Mike” Harris, my pronouns are He, Him and His and I am from Little Rock, Arkansas. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Arkansas where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Psychology. Currently, I serve as a Assistant Residence Hall Director for the Department of Housing & Residence Life at Western Kentucky University. I am also a graduate student pursuing a masters degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education.
With this blog, I am documenting my journey towards becoming a senior-level professional in the field of higher education and student affairs. I will share some of my experiences in the field of student affairs related to my campus involvement, applying for and my participation in graduate programs, my attendance at conferences, and my internship and professional experiences.
Throughout my journey in this field, I hope be involved with student leadership programs as well as play a part in creating resources for students that identify in various minority groups such as being a first-generation student, identifying as a person of color or identifying as an LGBTQIA+ student.
