Welcome to The Stack, my blog dedicated to stories of student success, announcements and highlights from the Division of Student Affairs.
Many years ago, as a Mizzou graduate student living in Mark Twain Hall, my friends called me Stack. The nickname stuck with me throughout my 40-year career in student affairs. So has the inspiration and energy I gain from the university’s innovation and commitment to student success.
