CCES welcomes Kristin Menson as new Director
In late August, PLU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service (CCES) welcomed Kristen Menson as its new Director.
Kristin comes to PLU from Louisiana State University (LSU) where she was the Program Manager in the Center for Community Engagement, Learning, and Leadership. Her work at LSU centered around supporting faculty to incorporate service-learning in their courses, helping students to bridge the gap between classroom learning and curricular and co-curricular service experiences, and supporting the various community partners that welcomed students and faculty into their work in the community.
Kristin earned a Master of Education in College Student Affairs and is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Philosophy in Higher Education from Azusa Pacific University. In addition, she holds a Certification in Volunteer Administration from the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration. She serves as a Reviewer for the Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Rocketkidz Foundation and the Youth Volunteer Corps. She has been an active volunteer in her community through the Junior League, Girls on the Run, animal rescue organizations, the endurance sport community, and more.
Please join the Office of the Provost in welcoming Kristin to the PLU Community!
PLU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service serves as a resource for students, staff, and faculty who want to learn and serve in the context of the Parkland and Tacoma community.
