1:  Who are you?
I'm Emily Borra!  I am a proud alumna of UW - Superior (undergraduate) & Indiana University (graduate).  I enjoy working with students, playing the French horn, nerding out, and spending time with my husband and dog on long walks.

I am the coordinator for Kirby's two large leadership programs - Bulldog Welcome Week & the Kirby Leadership Institute.  I am also responsible for the assessment of learning outcomes for Kirby's programs.
3:  What's your favorite part of your job?
 I love being able to work on the continuous improvement of programs to ensure students are in an environment that cultivates learning and growth.  The work I do in Kirby not only provides the opportunity to work with students but to also be creative!

 For a standard meal: tacos from Carniceria Guanajuato - a grocery store in Indianapolis, IN.  For a dessert meal: cheesecake from Carnegie Deli in NYC.
5:  If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Egypt.  I have a love of ancient Egyptian history since middle school.  I would love to travel and spend exorbitant amounts of time at the historic sites and museums.
