Vice President, Student Success
As Vice President for Student Success at the Student Resource Center, Demarus Crawford-White’s main focus is to expand the Bachelor’s degrees offered through Free College.
Demarus brings a positive attitude and optimistic energy to her work at the Student Resource Center. She believes happiness is a choice and that how you react to a situation is one of the few things over which you always have control.
Still, Demarus understands the choice to return to school is not always an easy one. Once a returning student herself, Demarus understands what many students are feeling: excited, energized, scared, and anxious all at once. Demarus’s goal is to make the process as easy as possible and instill in students the belief that they can do it if they start. Demarus knows she is helping students change the entire trajectory of their lives because she was once in the same position.
Now, she takes pride in knowing the students she helps at the Student Resource Center can obtain a degree without making the same sacrifices (except the studying—they still have to do that).
Demarus holds a Bachelor of Arts in business administration from Urbana University, a Master of Arts in communication and organizational leadership from Park University, and a Doctorate of Business Administration in organizational leadership from Northcentral University.
