My name is Kenyon Whitman. I am from South Sacramento, CA. I am Ph.D. student in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences. I received my B.S. and M.A. at Fresno State University. I have a passion for serving students who are pursuing their college goals. I have an interest in researching the non-cognitive factors and programmable interventions that enable students to be successful in higher education. I have previous experience working in various capacities of higher education, which include: University Outreach, Education Opportunity Program and University Housing. When I am not working or studying I enjoy salsa dancing and teaching group fitness.
