“Continuing education opens the doors for all opportunities. Anything is possible if we are willing to take the risk to change, learn and grow.”
These are words our new dean of faculty shared as she introduced herself on campus.
Meet Angela Ruppe
Angela Ruppe, who prefers being called Angie, recently accepted the dean of faculty position with Globe University-Eau Claire campus. Angie comes to campus with a unique mix of education and experience. She exemplifies her passion for continuing education with a background in teaching, management and counseling. Prior to coming to Globe University, Angie taught in the Behavioral Sciences Department at the secondary educational level.
Continuing Education Background
Angie graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in 2005 with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Psychological services. She obtained her Licensed Professional Counselor license in the state of Wisconsin in 2009. As a believer in continuing education, Angie went back to graduate school to obtain a Master’s of Business Administration degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in December of 2010.
Angie’s management style emphasizes collaboration. She encourages faculty, staff and students to stop by and introduce yourself. Angie states, “I am very excited to meet and work with all of you.”
Management on the Home Front
Angie carries a heavy workload on campus, and her day doesn’t end when she leaves campus! Another part of her day and life begin when she arrives home. Angie manages two active young boys, a husband, and two hermit crabs during her “off hours.”
Her Case for Continuing Education
Angie is a strong supporter of life-long learning, whether this is from formal education or from our experiences. Angie quotes psychologist Carl Rogers, “The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.” According to Angie, continuing education opens the doors for all opportunities. She believes, “Anything is possible if we are willing to take the risk to change, learn and grow.”
Welcome Angie! May you continue to open doors for the students at Globe University-Eau Claire!
