Serving UIF Since: September 2016
School: Elon University '19
What I'm up to now: Consulting in Washington, D.C. & UIguide for Elon University
What that means: I work in technology consulting for government and public services clients as my day job and facilitate the on-boarding, design thinking training, team bonding, leadership development, and self-reflection for UIF candidates on the side. I have found that mentoring fellows candidates is both energizing and insightful!
What I accomplished as a Fellow at Elon: Secured funding for UIF with key stakeholders, created new leadership roles within UIF to enhance accountability, facilitated the recruitment of 8 new fellows, restructured the on-boarding of new candidates, & developped a speaker series to bridge Business/STEM communities on-campus
What you'd find me doing in my free time: Hiking/camping in Shenandoah; whiteboarding out problems/ideas and their solutions/plans; reading/writing about education, well-being, and the relationship between mind + machine; cheering on the Eagles, Sixers, or Phillies
Why I continue to serve UIF: There are some problems in this world that need to be solved, and solutions begin with servant leaders who can envision, organize, and execute a plan of action by collaborating with their peers - all lessons fundamental to the UIF experience.
Where to find more information: I distribute essays, newsletters, and am creating a podcast (October 2020 release!) at joshcadorette.com.
