Sue's Picture for Website

How would you describe your work in the English Department? 

I provide administrative support for the Composition Program.  I meet with students to determine composition transfer equivalencies.  I provide support for composition registration issues and support for our Composition Challenge Exam. I provide support for faculty searches, faculty evaluations and tenure and promotion.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I enjoy the interaction with students and faculty.  I’ve really enjoyed advising students and getting to know them better.

What special project are you working on right now?

We are changing our Composition Placement procedures.  I’m working on revisions for our websites and the CSU Catalog.  I’m working with Web Communications and the Registrar’s Office to make sure everything will be ready to go by May 1st.

What’s the best advice you ever received?

The best advice I’ve received is to be more compassionate – less critical and judgmental.  Just breathe; Just Be; Be here now; I am Enough.

What or who inspires you?

When I’m not working at CSU, I love to take my 2 golden retrievers for a walk; hike; backpack; read; yoga; swim; garden; cook; play with my new grandson!
