A Conversation with Jeremy Sippel
What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?
A&M-Commerce is a place of opportunity. Students have the opportunity to explore their identities, join student organizations, develop networks and connections that will last a lifetime, and grow to be lifelong learners. Additionally, A&M-Commerce provides students the tools to be career-ready for a job in their field after graduation.
How do you help students at A&M-Commerce?
I help students navigate student organizations from start to finish; whether that be creating a new student organization or re-registering one of our current organizations. I also serve as a resource for students to develop leadership skills by providing various trainings and workshops directed at communication, teamwork, financial responsibility, and one's own identity. I get the pleasure of advising the Student Government Association and providing support to their advocacy efforts to ensure Commerce offers a high-quality student experience.
How has your role changed since you began working at A&M-Commerce?
I have been at A&M-Commerce now for almost 7 years. My role has changed significantly over that period of time. When I first started my work was more focused on developing marketable skills programs. As time progressed, my focus has shifted to student organization and Student Government leadership development.
