Dana Wehrli joined the Logan University team in October as the Assistant Dean of Experiential Learning and has loved her time as a Leopard so far. “Everyone has been so kind to me. There is such a sense of community and belonging here that you can’t find anywhere else,” Dana said.
Bringing more than 20 years of experience in higher education to her current position, Dana has a passion for career development and helping students navigate the job search process.
At Logan, Dana is working to expand career support to serve all students, traditional and non-traditional, and ensure all students have access to the tools and materials they need to succeed at any time of day, any day of the week.
“The biggest change that I’ve seen in this industry over the last 20 years is the transition to web-based career services,” Dana explained. “Brick-and-mortar classes are great, but they aren’t realistic for every student. There is no ’one-size-fits-all’ approach to career services because there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ type of student.”
Because of this digital shift, Dana is constantly tailoring her materials and services to each individual student and his or her unique needs.
Dana can review students’ professional correspondences such as resumes, CVs and cover letters, and she can provide individualized coaching to assist students with navigating various types of interviews, and help students develop and implement a job search strategy.
Dana is available during regular business hours in her office on campus and can also be reached via email, phone or video conference.
“I try to make myself as available as I can for my students, because I know how important this process is for them.”
