Brooke Moreland ’11 is a natural connector and advocate.
During her time at Butler, she spent three years serving as a Resident Assistant. She loved the role so much—from managing programs to building relationships—she wondered if she could do something similar full time.
Mentors at Butler—including former President Bobby Fong—introduced Moreland to the world of student affairs. She hasn’t looked back. After graduating from Butler’s Psychology program, she went on to earn her master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs from Indiana University.
After graduating with her master’s, she was hired at IUPUI, where she has worked mostly with first-generation students participating in Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program. She guides students through the program requirements, providing individualized support, and helping families understand financial aid logistics.
In addition to her work at IUPUI, she’s also founded two nonprofit organizations: one related to education and the other to social justice.
“My students, my career, and my community are so important to me,” she says. “Making a difference in students’ lives and forming those connections and relationships is the best part of my every day.”
