With 3 presenters down and 7 to go, let’s take a look at Mr. Jared Brown! Jared is a Pennsylvania native and has worked in higher education since he was fresh out of college. He earned both his BA and MA in Communications and has brought that education to life ever since.
Jared started his career at Penn State University in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority life. From there, he moved locations and worked as the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at West Chester University from 2005 – 2012. With much experience under his belt, he added a bit more to his plate and became the Director of New Student Programs at West Chester University and this is the position he currently holds. In addition to that, he also is an adjunct professor at Delaware County Community College—Exton, where he teaches a Public Speaking course.
When Jared finds himself outside of the higher education realms, he enjoys travelling, exercise, and eating good food. Three things everyone should enjoy!
With lots to offer professionally to our Conference (March 19th—mark your calendars!), Jared will be presenting on the “need” for Transfer Student Orientation. He will be facilitating a discussion showcasing the current program at West Chester University and what the campus is doing in regards to re-focusing on the needs and learning outcomes of the transfer population. The goal of the presentation is to have a candid discussion about the current trends of Transfer Orientation programs and how to improve the information and assistance provided to transfer students as they transition to a new campus.
We look forward to your presentation, Jared!
