Sara Holtzman a higher education practitioner has built a career around supporting students and developing policy to improve their experience. Sara has worked primarily working in housing and residence life developing systems to allow student personal growth and connection to the communities she has served. Her journey led her to equity work through the lens of sex and gender- based discrimination in her current role as the Director of Equity and Title IX Coordinator at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis. Through her varied lived experiences Sara found a deep appreciation for understanding and connecting with place and people; values that she continues to promote through her work in developing college students and communities. She works to challenge social structure and policy to allow for more equitable access to resources and support. It is her hope through the pursuit of her Doctorate in Educational Sustainability that she can more effectively serve as an effective, thoughtful, and inclusive change agent in her community. As Sara works toward reimagining systems of higher education, she recognizes the importance of balance and frequently calls on family and friends for connection. One may catch her enjoying a hike at High Cliff State Park, watching her favorite minor league baseball team, the Timber Rattlers, or trying to relive her childhood days by identifying woodland flora.
