Dean Alp striving to make a positive impact on ISU
Dean Nesli Alp has been at Indiana State University for six months now and is fully embracing being engaged with students, faculty, staff, and the campus community. Dean Alp stated “I want to make a positive impact on ISU. I had to look at opportunities and options and take risks to accept this position. I took the same kind of risk when I came to the U.S. for my Ph.D., which made me stronger. I always recommend my students and my kids to aim high, take risks, don’t be scared of challenges and never give up. Anything is possible if you work hard and if you really want it.” To learn more about Dean Alp, view the article published in STATE Magazine»
