Kevin joined McMicken in the summer of 2010, coming to the staff after the Center for Access and Transition closed. He started at the University of Cincinnati in the spring of 2007 and has more than fifteen years of experience in higher education.  Areas of interest within higher education that he has experience include career services, student-athlete support services, residence life and housing, but truly enjoys his experience in academic advising. Working with students to plan their educational experience to meet and exceed the goals set, keeps him enjoying his time within advising.

Previous positions have afforded him the opportunity to work with first-year students in all aspects of their transition to college life.  As an undergraduate student staff member he developed an interest in the first-year experience and was able to continue involvement through his graduate program at  Georgia Southern University. While in Statesboro, he coordinated residential efforts for the Success-In-U program while at GSU, and as the First-Year Experience Center and New Student Programming Coordinator at Franklin College in Franklin, IN after graduating with his Master of Education from GSU. He then served as Assistant Director, Office of Residence Life and Housing at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, IN before returning to academic advising and a first-year program with the Center for Access and Transition here at the University of Cincinnati.

Kevin's interests include sports at all levels and during all seasons. He also enjoys spending good times with family and friends.
