My name is Michelle Koppitz. I am excited to be teaching at Benedictine University! I have worked in many capacities with the University over the last 11 years and am quite proud of being a part of this community. I have also been quite passionate about adult education for over 17 years now. Additionally, I have personally taken both undergraduate and graduate level classes in this format and found them to be a wonderful experience. I believe that you will find as I have that online education will go beyond creating a convenience and also provide you a unique opportunity to learn in an environment that provides an uninhibited wealth of knowledge and experience.
My entire 17 year career within higher education has been dedicated to providing working adults the opportunity to earn their degree. To that end I have managed marketing plans, advertising plans and extensive budgets as well as numerous committees developing performance matrices, training modules and branding campaigns. I have lost count over the years of just how many actual people I have managed, but the teams I have had the pleasure of working with were considered highly successful and taught me a great deal. I am hopeful that the many things I have learned through my education, peers and experience will be benefit you as you begin to consider the impact you might have on others.
