Robert Howard, Director of Project Management for Student Affairs
Co-Advisor - UCOSA
Serving as the Director of Project Management in the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Central Oklahoma since February 2012 I have seen several projects through to successful completion. My time at the University has been a fantastic experience that has allowed me the opportunity to bring several project management philosophies into the Division. Project management and Student Affairs are not often used in the same sentence, however it is the essence of closing projects that has and will drive my passion for higher education. Leaning on my extensive background in the live entertainment industry, I have been able to bring several time and cost saving methodologies to campus.
